System Error: Where Big Tech Went Wrong and How We Can Reboot

Agora Institute

Join the SNF Agora Institute for a discussion of the new book, “System Error: Where Big Tech Went Wrong and How We Can Reboot,” with authors Rob Reich, Mehran Sahami, and Jeremy M. Weinstein.

As political and public health crises expose both the extent to which society is reliant on technology and the power that Big Tech now wields, “System Error” uncovers the negative impacts of the algorithmic march toward optimization and charts a course for the redemocratization of technology. The authors, all professors at Stanford University, call on their practical experiences in policymaking, ethics, and technology as the foundation for solutions to the increasingly omnipresent issues presented by the domination of Big Tech.

SNF Agora Institute Professor Henry Farrell will moderate the discussion.
