Women in Tech Podcast | Ethics and Technology: Can they coexist?

In this episode, Access Partnership’s Policy Manager, Sofia Tirini, interviews Dr. Stephanie Hare, a noted expert in the field of technology and transparency.

Dr. Hare is a researcher, broadcaster and author specialising in technology, politics and history. Selected for the BBC Expert Women programme and the Foreign Policy Interrupted Fellowship, she is a frequent contributor to radio and television and has published articles in various media outlets. Most recently, her book ‘Technology Is Not Neutral: A Short Guide to Technology Ethics’ was selected as one of the books of summer 2022 by the Financial Times and one of the best books of 2022 so far by FT readers.

In this episode, Stephanie discusses what motivated her to write the book, highlighting her concerns regarding how technology is deployed. Stephanie also shares her thoughts on what the role of regulators and policymakers should be, given the safety and ethical challenges that tech creates. For example, Artificial Intelligence has attracted significant regulatory scrutiny – should this technology be regulated, and why? Other topics explored include whether it’s possible to overcome ethical issues in the development and deployment of new technology.
