We’re excited about the day’s program. We’ll be featuring companies innovating for change, technologists engineering ethical tech, teens sharing their perspectives on social media, and new research on family tech use. I’ve highlighted a few exciting moments to look forward to throughout the day:
- Ads, Violence, Fake News, Oh My!: Hear from early tech entrepreneur Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist, Google’s kids’ policy lead, and our own editor-in-chief to talk about what companies must do to address misinformation and get to quality content online.
- What Would a Healthy Internet Look Like?: Tristan Harris of the Center for Humane Technology will explore what product redesign could mean for our everyday.
- Sleep, Screens, Apps, and Evidence: Hear from leading researchers on the latest research on screens, social media, and mobile device use.
- Companies Redesigning for Privacy: Our Privacy Program has had real impact. Hear how companies are improving their edtech products for students.
- Teens Talk Tech: Acclaimed writer Dave Eggers will moderate a panel of teens as they share how tech affects their relationships and their lives.
The event is free for government employees, students, and educators.
We hope to see there!
