At the World Economic Forum in Davos last week, “technology for good” was one of the main topics on the agenda. Big Tech – companies like Microsoft and Google – have used their airtime to defend more regulation, especially in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). It is a broad term that applies to several different technologies, such as facial recognition.
