Dr. David Bray, director of the GeoTech Center, spoke recently to HMG Strategy in advance of his appearance at their “2020 HMG Live! Philadelphia CIO Executive Leadership Summit.” In the interview, Dr. Bray laid out the GeoTech Center’s mission and our vision for the future of our technologically enhanced society.

“To summarize what we do at the GeoTech Center in a nutshell: we examine how technology and data are changing the world. Power and the norms of society always have been distributed in a few ways, including via the rule of law, use of new technologies, and shared human narratives. Moving forward, will advances in new technologies and data capabilities prompt us to become more autocratic or become more democratic as societies?”
