Overview

Technology is in dire need of ethical consideration.

Torah && Tech is a discussion at the intersection of one of the world's oldest wisdom traditions and the modern technological world.

How do we understand artificial intelligence? What is mentorship in a fast-paced business environment? Who owns code? What is the role of self-interest? These and many other questions are covered in this volume of ideas from two rabbis turned software developers.

Ethics and technology are not an either/or proposition. The two must walk hand-in-hand in order to shape the ever-evolving world around us for the good and betterment of all people. Torah && Tech is an exploration into that crucial conversation.
