Hosted by Ben Tarnoff with Angèle Christin, Sam Greenspan, and Gillian Terzis
Is technology making the world better or worse? How do the new tools
we're building shape the idea and practice of justice—criminal, social,
environmental, and racial?
Please join Logic Magazine to celebrate the release of our new issue,

from algorithmic sentencing in the criminal justice system to Silicon
Valley's hostility to journalists. Then we'll open it up for a conversation.
