Digital technologies are becoming part of our everyday lives. They are integrated into our work, our access to healthcare and essential services, and how we connect and relate to each other.  But with these increases in connectivity, convenience, and efficiency come many risks to our privacy, security, and safety online. They also raise big questions about the kind of society we want to live in. Will it be a techno-utopia, a dystopia, or somewhere in between?

In this session, we will explore some of the ethical questions about modern digital technologies and consider how they can create risks, cause harm, and undermine our individual and collective rights online. Can we imagine a technological future that looks better than the path we are currently on?

We will also look at the kinds of technologies we use every day and the steps we can take to better protect ourselves in an interconnected world.
