Living with 21st Century Technology

Where is the user’s guide for living amid ever-changing technologies?

As a leading research university, UNSW is in the business of imagining things that change human capabilities, innovating to transform the very spaces in which we live. This Grand Challenge examines the consequences. Here we ask hard questions about the technologies we invent, design, build and use.

It is not about just one technology. It’s about the personal, social, health and environmental impacts of all the technologies, everywhere, connecting us to everything and everyone else. It’s about ethical design, justice, and regulation that’s right for this revolution. We’ll explore: Are our choices making it easier to be human, or will biotech, automation and AI erode our very humanity?

Professor Lyria Bennett Moses is the lead of the Grand Challenge on Living with 21st Century Technology.
