The Tech Effect

An ITSP podcast series with Ariel Robinson

“This is The Tech Effect: the complacency driven by the complexity of the technology ecosystem, and a rejection of responsibility for individual and collective safety, security, and ethics. It’s time to take charge of our digital future.”

 

Tune in, almost every Wednesday at 8 pm EDT


Innovation is reshaping the world at an ever-increasing rate. Disruptors and visionaries across the globe are pushing the boundaries of science and technology, economics and industry, healthcare, policy, communications, and governance. From these advances emerge new career paths, educational disciplines, and opportunities for creation and discovery. 

But things don't always work the way we expect them to, and the consequences of disruption are impossible to predict. What is sacrificed for the sake of efficiency or convenience? Who gets to make that call? Whose fault is it when pre-teens get radicalized online, or health records get stolen? And whose job is it to prevent that from happening?  Is it even possible?   

Individuals, enterprises, and society writ large have the right and responsibility to proactively shape and secure the future, but our ability to do so is at risk. As technology continues to proliferate without being well understood, people who fall victim to its failure or misuse feel more and more disempowered to prevent future damage. This is The Tech Effect: the complacency driven by the complexity of the technology ecosystem, and a rejection of responsibility for individual and collective safety, security, and ethics. 

It’s time to take charge of our digital future.

Episode II

Vendors and Users and Lawyers—Oh my! Who’s Who in the Technology Ecosystem
Wednesday | June 21, 2017

In this episode, host Ariel Robinson speaks with the Atlantic Council’s deputy director of the Cyber Statecraft Initiative Beau Woods and Popular Science tech reporter Kelsey Atherton to figure out who’s who in the technology ecosystem, and just how innovations—or disruptions—occur. It is a little tricky (don’t worry-- there will be diagrams), but in the end, there are things every stakeholder can do to improve the overall safety of the technology ecosystem.
