Fighting Homelessness with Ethical Technology

Recording: Fighting Homelessness with Ethical Technology, Mar 11, 2019

When building technology to fight homelessness, what considerations need to be central? How do ethics play into product design and software development?

Panelists will talk about their experience in government and the private sector working on this issue—identifying where tech can have the biggest impact, and involving homeless residents in the design process. We’ll talk about the wide range of ways to define “homelessness,” the design challenges, and the best practices we’ve found so far.
