22 September 2022

Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC -05:00)

In the future digital technology will become an embedded enabler in everything. What if we started to design ICT for empowerment, equality, social sustainability, or democracy, instead of designing for capacity, speed, or effectiveness? Would it change how we see the role of technology in our everyday life? Would we have better products and services? Would we have more resilient societies?
