ParTecK 2018

Big Data, Governance and Ethics

At the 2nd annual ParTecK gathering, we explored ways to nudge culture towards a future where it will be easier to be a genuinely “good” tech company who is “making the world a better place” more than making it a dystopic one. The bleeding edge of big data and breakneck pace of tech puts evolutionary pressure on us to figure out how to ride this wave, not least through how we co-ordinate humanity’s growth through governance. We explored ways to nudge away from a culture that creates disempowerment, poverty and excessive wealth, towards a culture that calls forth a more true and beautiful life-world that humans can create.
