Technology and Peace
The advent of new technologies has fundamentally changed the capacity for processing and exchanging
information in the 21st century. NGOs and
governments, and companies alike are just beginning to understand the
potential that these tools and systems can have in analyzing and
addressing a range of social problems. This dynamic one-week course
will explore how technology is being used to transform conflicts, build
more sophisticated statistical models, fight diseases, monitor
elections, distribute food, design better economic development measures,
and much more. It will also consider some of the key challenges related
to access, implementation, scale, and evaluation that working with
technology presents. The course is designed for professionals from both
the private and public sectors to assist them in developing strategies
and skills to benefit their organization amid this rapidly evolving
landscape. Participants can expect a hands-on and interactive learning
environment with a variety of real world examples from organizations
