Morality, change, and transformation pique my interest

There has always been disruption and change in my life. Originally, I envisioned myself by the age of 8 as a judge, by the age of 10 as the Robin Hood of the internet and deploy a hack to improve the lives of others until I was 16 and decided that I would be a CEO of a large company at 30. Despite my career aspirations being disruptive, they were all guided by morals, change, and technology.

Almost as soon as I enrolled in college, I began endeavoring to do something that made the world a better place or even made a single person laugh.   I do not aim to save the entire world; my goal is to protect humanity and explore new worlds of technology together at the right pace.   Our generation has seen how new technologies affect us and how change is tolerated in a short amount of time the most. As an example, I owned very proudly a typewriter at the age of 7, got my first computer at the age of 8, and got my first cell phone at the age of 12 (yes, not a smartphone). The digital revolution began after that. In those years, I loved to experiment, but I never knew how dangerous it could be. I’ll never forget the moment I realized there was a connection to the world when I sat down at my computer and understood there was a whole new level of communication: the internet. I realized eventually: “The internet is my world.” I have never considered the internet an enemy, but unfortunately, I have met many people who have been bullied – in the cyber world. I’ve seen people emotionally broken by the internet, computer games, and poor social interaction in chat rooms. These people’s emotions exist in the real world, not on the web. I was very sad when I saw that years ago. There was no one who could help: Everything appeared on the internet, but the emotions, the anger, and all the pain remained offline. I often asked myself: “Why isn’t there a technical way to stop it? “

And now, in 2021, we are entering the era of ethical algorithms created solely to create semblances of order in a world of chaos. Was it different if a moral compass had been available from the start? Could technology act as that compass? We often debate liability, but let me ask a counterquestion: What if everything keeps going as usual?  

I would describe myself as someone who is very moral when it comes to digital technology. I would never want to improve myself by putting others at a disadvantage! That is one of my life guidelines, but: People often think of me as “Oh, she is intelligent, she must be a nerd” or “Oh, because she shares knowledge she must be arrogant”, but nothing could be further from the truth. I consider knowledge a free and public good, so I share it with others. I use my mind only to solve problems I believe are worth solving, and I’m not arrogant, I’m just human. I’m just like everyone else. If I can, I try to improve things and I don’t turn a blind eye to wrong. 

The time for action is now! We are likely to have no chance of regaining control, if we accept technology and algorithms we do not understand, changes the human brain cannot master, and technology we cannot control. Our current world is risky, but we can reduce it with technology and human cooperation at a good pace. We will also discuss governance of technologies, new change concepts, and morality in our new world in this blog! We will share some of our own developed concepts, always inspired by our own and your experiences.
