The Australian Human Rights Commission has begun to explore the impact of technology on our human rights.
Responsible innovation means harnessing the opportunities of new technology, while guarding against the threats.
Technology should be shaped by human values, to protect and promote rights and freedoms.
Our lives are being transformed as we discover new ways to connect, to understand and to be included. But we also face unprecedented threats to our basic rights. How we respond will shape the community we become.
I also know we can still shape that world, and make it into a place that reflects our humanity, our cultures and our cares…It requires that we enter a conversation about the role of technology in Australian society, and about how we want to navigate being human in a digital world.
Neither technology nor the disruption that comes with it is an exogenous force over which humans have no control. All of us are responsible for guiding its evolution.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.
