We have a complicated relationship with tech. Throughout history, technological advancements have helped us address some of our most pressing challenges, but its application has also created new ones. “A Tech + Human Love Story” will share examples of how tech–from AI and digital identity systems to social media platforms–can be applied to change our world for good, but also provides caution on how tech must be designed and applied in ways that are inclusive, fair and just.
