How do you ethically steer the thoughts and actions of two billion people’s minds every day?
Called the “closest thing Silicon Valley has to a conscience,” by The Atlantic magazine, Tristan Harris spent three years as a Google Design Ethicist developing a framework for how technology should “ethically” steer the thoughts and actions of billions of people from screens. He is now co-founder & president of the Center for Humane Technology, whose mission is to reverse ‘human downgrading’ and re-align technology with humanity. Additionally, he is co-host of the Center for Humane Technology's Your Undivided Attention podcast with co-founder Aza Raskin.
Your Undivided Attention is a podcast from the Center for Humane Technology co-founders Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin where they explore how technology has manipulated human nature and warped our world.
Technology companies are locked in an arms race to seize our attention, and that race is tearing apart the social fabric.
In each episode, Tristan and Aza interview experts on human nature and the ways technology impacts society – ranging from how technology influences attention spans, drives addiction, spreads rumors and disinformation, topples democracies – and explore potential ways we might fix it.
