A More Ergonomic Relationship with Tech

Tristan Harris, Time Well Spent

Tristan Harris, a tech entrepreneur turned design ethicists, offers a framework for better aligning today’s systems with human values. Using artificial intelligence as an example, Harris calls for a more symbiotic relationship with AI, instead of the current state, where it is designed to extract our attention. He likens the relationship to that of depleting Earth’s natural resources, and calls for a more sustainable model based on renewal and replenishment.
