Values, Ethics and Innovation - Rethinking Technological Development in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Nov 03, 2018 | World Economic Forum, Thomas Philbeck, Nicholas Davis, Anne Marie Engtoft Larsen

This White Paper by the WEF’s Values, Ethics and Innovation project develops a call to action for values leadership. Thomas Philbeck, Nicholas Davis, and Anne Marie Engtoft Larsen argue that society and technology develop in tandem, with technologies shaping and embodying societal values, and call for a human-centred approach to technological development. They describe the tools, skills, partnerships and institutions required to achieve transformative innovation that does not widen the gap between haves and have-nots, and that facilitates technological advance for social progress.
