The Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society is asking critical questions about new technologies—and bringing diverse experts together to create human-centred solutions.

Who decides how we should use gene-editing and biotechnologies? How can we leverage Big Data without violating individual privacy? By asking critical questions, we can shape new technology for the public good.
