Our fifth panel asking: what is ‘good’, who is responsible for ‘good’, and how can we embed ‘good’ into structures and processes to make technology work for people and society?
On Monday 8 June, we were delighted to kick off CogX 2020 by curating the first day of the Ethics & Society stage. 25 speakers across six panels joined us to tackle the knotty, real-life trade-offs of benefits and harms that emerging technologies bring to people and society. This is a summary of the fifth panel of the day – What does ‘good’ look like in a technosociety? – which you can watch in full below:
