Technology Ethics and the Health of the Internet - JuniorDevSG

Published on: Wednesday, 14 November 2018

Speaker: Keith Chia

As developers, we live, breathe, and die a little bit on the internet. We write code and behave in ways that both consume and add to the internet. So it’s not a bad idea to be aware of how healthy the internet is, and its effect on the people that use it. What does that mean? Is the internet in 2018 healthy for us as individuals, or as a society, or for humanity as a whole? Is it safe, open, welcoming, and shared?

Inspired by Mozilla’s Internet Health Report, we’ll talk a little bit about our responsibilities as creators of technologies, the issues of technology ethics and design at scale, and frameworks that we can consider utilising as internet users of the 21st century.
