Collective Intelligence

Apr 1, 2019

Bruce Schneier, a cryptography pioneer, and fellow and lecturer at Harvard’s Kennedy Business School, has taken up the cause of public-interest technology and is trying to bring awareness to the current state of affairs, and how not only security professionals but technologists in all fields can make a difference.

In this episode of the Collective Intelligence Podcast, Schneier discusses how technologists can—and should feel an obligation to—make a difference. Schneier uses the analogy of public-interest law and would like to see technologists, beyond security and privacy professionals, carve out pro-bono time to assist marginalized communities or built software tools that are public-interest focused.
