In order to address the impacts of technology, we must understand not only what these are, but also how they came to be. Since 2013, CTA has been researching, presenting, and advising on the ethical threats of the technology – what these are, how best to mitigate them, and how to effectively plan ahead to proactively address future ethical concerns.
Technology is the most powerful tool in our world today, and Silicon Valley is the home of that innovation and power. Recent concerns around the safety, ethics, and responsibility of big tech have put a spotlight on the products, services, and behaviors of the industry. Our aim is to assist tech companies, educators, and legislators by ensuring technology is developed in a safe, ethical way that contributes to individual wellbeing, equality, and social cohesion.
