Content-type: text/html ~ Stephen's Web ~ A framework for evaluating rapidly developing digital and related technologies

Knowledge, Learning, Community

Although everybody today is focused on AI, I did some project work with the ISC when Covid first hit, and it strikes me that 'rapidly developing' could be applied to a range of things to which technology may be a response. So the framework could be applied to, say, 'remote learning' as well as to AI, as it is here. "The issues are broadly grouped into the following categories for further examination:
   • Wellbeing (including that of individuals or self, society and social life, and civic life)
   • Trade and economy
   • Environmental
   • Geo-strategic and geo-political
   • Technological (system characteristics, design and use)."
This seems to capture the entire range, but an awful lot is packed into 'wellbeing', which seems to diminish the importance of individual items within it when compared to, say, trade and economics, or geopolitics.
