Technology is changing everything, but it’s also moving more quickly than we can keep up with—how can we make sure it works for us instead of against us? Nicholas Thompson, CEO of The Atlantic and former editor-in-chief of WIRED, says that  innovations have improved our lives in countless ways—"We live longer, eat better, and keep powerful computers in our pockets”—but we need vigilant journalism and an engaged society that is prepared to keep Big Tech in check. An award-winning author and former editor at The New Yorker, Nicholas teaches us what technology like ChatGPT can mean for our society, and how we can thrive in a future defined by new rules, new values, and new possibilities.https://ethics-institute.dartmouth.edu/news-events/annual-events/dorsett-fellowship-lecture-series
