Grey Mirror #8 Kate Darling, MIT: A Systemic View on Regulation and Gender Roles in Tech

Image for post

This is a podcast from MIT Media Lab’s Digital Currency Initiative on technology, society, and ethics called Grey Mirror (Soundcloud, Youtube, iTunes, Spotify).

In today’s episode, I interview Kate Darling, a Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab and an Affiliate at the Harvard Berkman Center. We chat about the balances in regulating technology, the negative systemic impacts of our current gender roles, and how being a mother has helped Kate empathize more!
