Ted McCarthy

XD Researcher

I'm passionate about the ways in which technology and data are changing the world - for both better and worse. While I think our increasingly mobile tech- and data-driven world holds great promise for improving our health, transportation, governance, and maybe even the environment over the next several decades, I believe we're going to have to remain ever-vigilant of the ways in which technology wends its way into our lives to ensure it continues to benefit and enrich our lives. With great technological power comes great technological responsibility.
