Abstract

The purpose of this panel is to explore the potential for emerging technology to engender social change. Technology is transformative, and has already seen innovative application in business and industry, and of course in relation to society and social networking. We will discuss the current state of 'emerging technology', and several perspectives of considerations with emerging technologies and society. We will describe some current applications of emerging technology in a range of fields, in order to identify the potential for emerging technology to support social change. Our goal is to open discussions about opportunities for emerging technology, and practical applications or approaches to how these opportunities can be exploited.
