What we're about

Technology shapes us as individuals and as a society. We are an interdisciplinary group of technologists, designers, and interested individuals who seek to explore the role of ethics in technology, our human relationship with tech and its implications for society. We seek to connect with experts and NGOs in the field in order to shape our practice, develop tools and methods, and influence our work as professionals and the sector at large. We welcome all interested individuals from any field.

Ethical issues in the data society with Piek Visser-Knijff

ThoughtWorks Deutschland GmbH

Our society gets datafied. Data-driven work is more and more the starting point for companies and governments. What does that mean for individuals, for citizens? Technology takes a central part in our, individual, lives. We use technology for own benefits, or just because we think there’s no alternative. What does it mean to live in a data society? What are the ethical implications? During this evening, Piek Visser-Knijff will introduce you to data-ethics: the values we need to take into account if we want to use data & tech in a way that supports us as humans. She will speak about recent and actual cases to support her vision on humane technology.
