Emerging technologies such as Machine Learning and Blockchain have the potential to deliver tremendous economic and social benefit. Nonetheless, there is rising concern about some of their “unintended consequences”. The public debate often focuses on policy issues such as security, privacy and bias. Less spoken about is an underlying angst related to the quality of software that we, as developers, are foisting on the world. The premise of this talk is that in order to have tech for good we need good tech – and that this is a unique responsibility of the global developer community.
