Using Policy and Design to Navigate the Harms of New Technology
New designs and technologies have always emerged into the world unbound and unregulated. Little by little, as their implications become apparent, they come to be addressed by governance systems meant to ensure the well-being of the public. But what happens when technology moves so fast that regulation can’t keep up? Today, designers, engineers and companies on the front lines of emerging tech increasingly do the ad hoc work of creating policy. This is a book for both designers and policy makers to think more deeply about how their work intersects, and to consider how these two spheres can work together to create tools and rules that exist to serve the public interest.
