Technology has unlimited potential… it has been and will continue to be a catalyst for change and transformation. Sustained technological advancement is instrumental in creating forward leaps, both for humanity and for our planet. Examples could be: a new positive application of social media that delivers education to disadvantaged communities or a bot designed to monitor global forests and their ecosystems.
However, there’s also the negative impact of tech that we cannot fail to consider. For example, facial recognition software that encourages racial profiling or a new technology that’s consuming natural resources with no consideration for the overall environmental impact.
Help us identify profound examples you’ve seen of tech either being used for good or for bad and what impact it has caused.
