Toward a brighter future? A research presentation to show the benefits and drawbacks of technology on business and society.
Technology is transforming the digital landscape and is having widespread impacts on business and society. However, the incorporation of technology into businesses often is done with an overarching expectation that technology will create a largely positive impact on the business. What if there are drawbacks to the use of technology in business and society that could be acknowledged and mitigated when new technology is introduced?
Drawing on emergent research, this talk addresses topics in user interface design and how the brain and body responds to technology. Using this as the basis, the larger topic of responsible integration of technology into business and society will be discussed, specifically focused on how to minimize unintended consequences of widespread, irresponsible technology use within the organization.
