Why Fairness Needs to be Hardwired into Future Tech Policy

In a recent Op-Ed for the IET, Ivan Ivanov discusses Fair Tech and the importance of bridging the digital divide when it comes to the development of future technologies. As the world emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that this divide will be greater than ever before.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted more than ever why it’s only fair that everyone has access to technology and connectivity. During this period, it has been those with access to high-speed internet connections who have been better equipped to continue their lives during lockdown. However, as it stands, connectivity isn’t something enjoyed by everyone and barriers remain not only to this, but also to establishing access to technology and digital literacy for all.”
