We are a research group in NYU, trying to apply emerging technology to real world problems. Our world, given the charged political climate, is being ripped apart along sectarian and racist lines. Modern day technology has not really helped in healing these rifts. One might argue that it has only exacerbated the problem – what with the dominant discourse across social media being overwhelmingly negative.
In our group, we are trying to reimagine emerging technologies as a tool to heal rifts and enable conversation between groups that think of themselves as mutually exclusive with respect to the other. We are trying to apply social and ethical values to technology.
