Can you imagine ways that your technology can or will be used to break the law? Think about invading privacy. Spying. Hurting people. Fraude/identity theft and so on. Or will people use your technology to avoid facing the consequences of breaking the law (for example a technology that tracks speed radars and warns you, so you can speed all the time there is no radar).
If you brainstorm, can you imagine ways that your technology will be used to invade privacy? To hurt, bully or harras individuals? Insult people? Create societal unrest, and so on. Can you write down examples or ways that this can be done?
If you brainstorm can you imagine ways in which your technology can be used to hurt, insult or discriminate certain societal groups. For example a face recognition technology that does not recognize people of certain races. Or a technology that is gender - specific? Can you write down examples or ways that this can be done?
If you brainstorm can you imagine ways in which your technology increases the gap between classes, gender or races? Do you see bad actors using your technology to polarize society? Can you write down examples or ways in which this can be done?
Can you think of ways in which your technology can be used as equivalent of fake news, bots or deepfakevideos (for example). Can you write down examples or ways in which this can be done?
The idea of the technology impact tool is that it stimulates you to think hard about the impact of your technological solution. This can lead to design - changes, which is a good thing. Please list them here.
