Digital technologies create enormous opportunities for individuals to use their unique and dispersed knowledge for the benefit of the whole economy (as well as society).
The speed and scale of technological innovation bring chances for improvements that shape our economies, our politics, and our communities. At the same time, it can intensify inequalities, pose new risks, and raise severe issues about responsibility, liability, and values.
The dominance and sheer concentration of power in the hands of a few large tech platforms - in the context of data, markets, and decision-making - pose a considerable risk in the evolvement of our society.
"We must come together to envision and articulate a new social contract for data and technology in the 21st century."
Redefining the technology contract of our society may go hand in hand with the evolvement of new decentralized innovative organization structures, with its collective and consensus-driven decisions models.
With these two ingredients, we have the key in our hand to move significantly forward in the rollout of beneficial technologies and may have the chance to transform the world to a better place for our next generation.
Stay Curious, Stay Humble, Stay Open, Move Forward.
