Panel Discussion: Working Toward a More Inclusive Future for Tech

Technology surrounds us and is increasingly pervasive in all we do and see. We’ve got ChatGPT and the rise of AI everywhere, smart drone tech, electric vehicles that drive themselves, virtual and augmented reality making a resurgence, and the mysteries of quantum science are poised to influence everything. These advances can be overwhelming and bewildering — but what does it all mean for our society? In particular, what does it mean for inclusion and equity? How can we get ahead of these new technologies and harness their potential for a more just and innovative future? How can we avoid the pitfalls of the past and avoid playing catch up with respect to mitigating cultural collateral damage — especially when it comes to the marginalized people in the world?

Moderated by Bryndan D. Moore, an African-American engineer, futurist, and multimedia producer. He is a leading voice at the intersection of innovation and societal impact.
