Technologies of Hope & Fear

A Tactical Tech-curated collection of technologies “developed, marketed and implemented to mitigate the pandemic and to help societies ‘get back to normal.’”

The project creates a snapshot in time and an archive of rapid shifts in the uptake of ambient, behavioural and bio-metric data and intelligence worldwide. Some of these technologies bring hope and some play into our fears. Ultimately the project asks — what kinds of societies are we building? what trade-offs are we willing to make? and do these techno-solutions help us succeed in controlling the virus, or only in controlling the hosts?
