Information security, IoT safety, data privacy, algorithmic security and fairness, AI, biotech, the future of work—information technology is now a public policy issue. But while an understanding of the technology involved is fundamental to crafting good policy, there’s little involvement of technologists in policy discussions.
This isn’t sustainable. We need public interest technologists: people from our fields helping craft policy and providing security to agencies and groups working in the broader public interest. We need them in government, at NGOs, teaching at universities, as part of the press, and inside private companies. This is increasingly critical to both public safety and overall social welfare
In this Spotlight on Cloud, find out about the current state of public interest technology and to discover a way forward, for us individually and collectively for our field.
