Ethical Innovation - Ensuring technology is used for good

When I first watched Connecting, a case study on interaction design, I found it truly inspiring and I was excited about the future of technology that was presented.  It opened my eyes to the potential we have to use technology to improve the health and well-being of people around the world. But five years on, I find myself viewing the same narrative through a slightly different lens - one that is a bit more wary of data collection and artificial intelligence. 

The question is, how do we create technology that serves to improve and enrich the lives of people around the world, while ensuring that there are safeguards in place to protect us from ourselves?
