Public Interest Tech is defined by the deployment of technological expertise in service of the common good, often with a focus on under-resourced communities and needs. This course will address how leaders might use digital technology to: ● Assist communities in adapting and deploying digital tools to meet local public health priorities, such as food insecurity, social isolation, and healthcare access. ● Support public school systems in addressing pedagogical, equity, and privacy gaps of the software platforms they depend upon. ● Enable community participation in data collection and decision making ● Collaborate with stakeholders to apply digital tools and models in support of a more equitable and effective criminal justice system. ● Advise local policy makers on the externalities of emerging safety and surveillance technologies.
