Taming Tech: Delivering a Global Framework for Humane Technology Through Art, Tech, and Policy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this panel discussion, a group of policy makers, technologists, and artists from Europe, California, and Silicon Valley will debate the findings of Taming Tech, an initiative that brings artists, technologists and politicians from both sides of the Atlantic together. The goal is to find a new global framework that can address some of the downsides of emerging technologies that impact our human dignity (“human downgrading”), without ignoring their potential benefit.

In Partnership with:
