Talk: Tristan Harris: "Can the Decentralized Web be more Humane that today's Web?"
August 1st, 5:00pm-5:30pm
Decentralized Web Summit 2018
Middle Out Courtyard
Speakers: Tristan Harris, Center for Humane Technology, Co-founder
Harris has a challenge and a warning: If we (in the decentralization community) don't recognize the social harms arising from centralized tech platforms (addiction, loneliness, mental health, polarization caused by attention-maximizing algorithms) then decentralized platforms will only decentralize the same social harms.
