At the end of October 2020, we were joined by many hundreds of humanitarians, communication and tech enthusiasts, futurists, policymakers and donors as we radically re-imagined digital humanitarian policy to make it more centred around community agency, knowledge and needs.
With more than 30 panellists form across six continents bringing their diverse expertise and experiences to bear on the responsible and ethical use of emerging technologies within humanitarian systems, the discussion was inspiring, challenging and provoked much discussion around ensuring that technological futures do not exacerbate past inequalities.
Missed it? Over two documents, we have summarised the main themes discussed during the CDAC 2020 Annual Public Forum, Accountability in the Age of the Algorithm: Championing Pathways to Inclusion in Tech-Driven Futures, namely:
Part 1: Imagining a World Beyond White Privilege
Part 2: Is Technology Broken? Making Technology Inclusive, Fair and Accessible
Both reports (which can be downloaded below) distil a wealth of insight, inspiration and experience.
