HOW CAN WE BETTER ALIGN THE INTERESTS OF TECH COMPANIES WITH THE INTERESTS OF USERS? What is good for business growth for startups and major tech companies often runs counter to what's best for users' wellbeing and society at large. Tech companies want profit. Users want trustworthy content, a safe online environment, and a focus on wellbeing. Can't we have both? All Tech Is Human sets out to tackle this vexing issue of misaligned incentives. Join us to discuss. Panel & Mingle with attendees. Light refreshments provided by Kenwood Vineyards. PANEL: CNN's Laurie Segall (Senior Technology Correspondent), NPR's Anya Kamenetz (author of The Art of Screen Time), Center for Humane Technology's Max Stossel, and Funny as Tech's David Ryan Polgar. Moderated by Matt Harrigan, co-founder of Grand Central Tech. Event is on the 4th floor. Advanced registration is required.
