The Young Fabians Technology Network is a group for young people on the left to come together to discuss and develop policy on the problems and opportunities arising from technology, from bias and discrimination in algorithms to the perils of platform capitalism.
The Labour Party needs to be prepared for the transformational effects of emerging technologies, like artificial intelligence & gene-editing. This event is the start of scoping exercise by the Tech Network to determine how we can best improve Labour Party policy in this area. At this event, we'll be breaking down the Labour Party's 2017 Manifesto (and official policy documents since) to identify:
- What is the Labour Party doing well in tech policy?
- Where do members disagree with current policy?
- What tech policy topics are Labour not addressing at all?
The outcome of our discussion will be summarised as a blog post on the Young Fabians' website. The discussion will also inform the tech network's subsequent events and hopefully spark ideas among attendees for their own blog posts/events etc. which the network can support.
Women, those who identify as LGBT, members of BAME communities and other groups traditionally underrepresented in technology and society more generally are particularly encouraged to attend and share their thoughts and perspectives on technology policy.
If you have any accessibility requirements, let us know and we will make reasonable adjustments to ensure you are able to fully participate in the network.
