Why can technology not work without democracy and rule of law? What is the state of play regarding the rise power of technology, and related rise of economic power? How to control technological power? How to preserve our democracy and quality of life, and increase their resilience. Can rule of law compatible technology actually support such preservation? How to make engineers aware that what they build has (direct or indirect) adverse impact on democracy and the quality of life. How to make sure they understand their ethical and societal responsibility and accountability of what is built? How to raise the understanding of technology and related powers of politicians, civil servants and other policy making stakeholders? How to get more engineers and other science, technology and interdisciplinary knowledge onboard in those policy making domains? This Dialogue with Paul Nemitz dives into these and related important matters.
