Digital and biological technologies have brought significant changes to human lives, economies, and politics in the 21st century. Many of these changes are driven by technological innovations in Asia.
Our Technology Programme provides a platform for regional and inter-disciplinary dialogue among policymakers, civil society, and academics. Our intent is to introduce issues of ethical governance, human rights, as well as participation and transparency into debates about technology. The programme also seeks to address the question of how it can be ensured that emerging technologies work for the benefit of human society.
Areas of interest include data protection and privacy, regulation of artificial intelligence, gendered dimensions of technology, bioethics in genetic engineering, and the engagement of digital publics.
