Technology for Good
Ever since the Industrial Revolution, technology has been developing at a rapid (and accelerating!) pace. Some innovations have caused revolutionary advancements in the quality of human life, like vaccines and refrigerators. Others, however, have caused horrific suffering on a massive scale (think machine guns and chemical weapons). Technology for good is all about harnessing the incredible power that science gives us to improve the world, rather than to cause harm. There are so many opportunities to apply technology for positive social change, and by proceeding cautiously, we can ensure that all innovation goes for good.
