The Tech We Want: An Ethical Approach to Innovation

Co-Curated with


From the A-Levels algorithm to predictive policing, any vestige of doubt that tech needs to be ethical, fair and transparent has been clean swept aside. It only takes an image of students protesting outside of the Ministry of Education to hammer home that the stakes are high for citizens, civil society, governments, and businesses alike.

In this CogXtra, we explore some of the most pressing issues and promising solutions for building the tech we want. We’re shining a spotlight on designing the UK’s digital twin, the importance of data in seeking justice, and we’ll be joined by the Digital Minister blazing a trail in Taiwan.
