Technological innovation often starts with a promise of empowerment — plans to make the whole world’s information accessible (Google), to give people the power to build community (Facebook), to share ideas instantly (Twitter), or simply to enable them to do more (Microsoft).
However, as technology companies have grown, many people have a sense of disenfranchisement and powerlessness. Their data are collected and traded — often hacked — in ways that are difficult to monitor and control. Smart cities are covered in sensors but the information is not necessarily freely available. People fear that robots will take their livelihoods. Social media can be an arena for bullying rather than free speech.

Away from the bleak headlines, however, people and communities are still putting new technologies to use in solving social problems, holding authorities to account and overcoming injustice or inequality. Often these projects and innovations happen at grassroots level and on low budgets, practically invisible to the wider public.

Tech lines by Leaders:
Every piece of technology should help embellish the capability of human beings. We definitely want more productivity and efficiency, but we do not want to degrade humanity.

“The ability to really make sure that we’re not only thinking about the person, but the institutions people builds,”

“We think about it at the global scale, but most importantly, for us, it’s not about our technology, it is about what you can do with technology to create your own technology, to have real impact in moving our society and economy forward. That’s what is central to our mission,”

“In fact, technology trends and paradigms will come and go, but what will center us is this sense of purpose and mission?”

This is a time where the profound impact of technology in everything that people do is so much deeper, so much broader, whether one is talking about precision agriculture, or precision medicine, the future of connected products, smart cities or smarter factories.

“There isn’t a single industry that isn’t being transformed.

We collectively have the opportunity to lead in this transformation,”

    I would like to express some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this particular challenge. Right after searching throughout the online world and getting tips which were not helpful, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive without the strategies to the difficulties you’ve fixed through your main review is a serious case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my career if I had not noticed your blog post. Your good training and kindness in maneuvering every item was helpful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a point like this. I can at this time relish my future. Thanks so much for the high quality and amazing guide. I will not think twice to suggest your web page to any individual who requires support on this problem.
