So you’ve got an oath…now what?

Responsible tech…

- does not knowingly deepen existing vulnerabilities and inequalities, or create new ones

- protects existing democratic and human rights

- is made by teams that are mindful of their ethical, social and human impact

- has controls in place to react to and guard against unintended consequences

- is designed with security and safety in mind

The master list
