Better Ethics and Consumer Outcomes Network
Modern digital technologies have swept the world before we've had a chance to understand them. And because of their wreckless pace of growth we now live in a world full of tech addictions, accelerating rates job displacement, and powerful forms of invisible social engineering, among many other threats.
As former and active technologists, regulators and changemakers with experience working for some of the largest technology organzations in the world, we understand the problems arising from the rapid evolution of technologies we're experiencing right now. We also know what kind of impact can be expected from companies hiding behind their algorithm. For these reasons and more, we decided to launch BEACON, the Better Ethics and Consumer Outcomes Network.
Our for-profit initiative, BEACON Labs, works to translate technologies ethical dilemmas into positive-sum business solutions. Our non-profit initiative, BEACON Institute, works to educate and accelerate communities around the globe through active participation.
We believe approaching this effort this way is the only way to successfully make the changes that need to be made. And so far it seems to be working, as our work has been featured in:
In the past two years, we have also been invited to more than 19 different states or nations across four continents to educating people about the inner workings of Big Tech. Events have included classroom lectures at universities, conferences with world leaders in some of the biggest tech hubs in the world, and private consulting with some of the biggest corporations in the world.
We're currently preparing to launch our first major product so our site is a bit scarce but we will have updates soon. Until then please subscribe to our email for regular updates or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org!Subscribe To Newsletter
