From the Organizers:
The World Post Pandemic: How surveillance and weapon systems, used unwisely, can harm humanity!
Mark Twain once wrote “against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.” Ethics In Technology is planning to put Mark Twain’s statement to the test about the military-industrial complex and the surveillance state. Join us for a night of thought-provoking presentations followed by some wonderful comedy.
The show is hosted by nonprofit organization Ethics in Technology, a nonprofit watchdog group advocating for a world where big tech firms and technology work to serve humanity and the planet, rather than the other way around. We focus on raising awareness of how technology intersects with issues surrounding income equality and economic opportunities for regular people, warfare and weapons technology and human rights, workers’ rights, civil liberties and privacy, equality and discrimination, and the ethics of emerging AI technology.

The EFA is a network of grassroots organizations across the country committed to promoting digital rights. Together, we're building a movement to promote freedom of expression, privacy, security, creativity, and access to knowledge.
