What are you doing on Friday. June 9? The Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society has issued an invitation. Fill Friday’s gaps in your calendar (and brain) with the Toronto Public Tech Workshop at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.
Technology’s impact on society is undeniable. Technological innovations have transformed the way we live and work, but the rapid pace of this innovation also raises novel concerns about privacy, security, and equity. There is a pressing need to explore and propose solutions to these challenges through research, policy, regulation, partnerships, and collaborations across various academic disciplines and stakeholders.
This workshop aims to address these challenges and offer new insights and solutions by bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise from a wide range of backgrounds. Presenters will share and discuss ideas on how to leverage new and existing technologies for public purposes, integrate policy and governance considerations, and build successful partnerships that engage with democratic institutions and public values.
