Human Dignity and the Calculus of Human Worth

10 mar 2022 17:00 - 18:30

Lecture by Margarita Boenig-Liptsin, 2021-2022 Paris IAS Fellow, as part of the Presidential Lecture Series "Technology and the Human Future" organized by the American University of Paris

Speakers have been invited within their presentations to address both theory--analyses of the social, economic, political, environmental and human impacts of technology on our lives—and practice, proposing ways that technology can be explicitly marshalled for good: to unleash creativity and disruption within traditional markets, to diminish human rights abuses, to drive activism and social change, to reduce racial and gender violence and economic inequity, and to strengthen our democracies and democratic practices. The responsibility for understanding and critiquing the role of technology on our lives and for measuring and regulating its impact on human beings and societies remains ours.
