Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In conducting research, one typically considers the potential harms associated with the research and how to minimize or mitigate the negative impacts thus leaving less time to consider designing for optimized benefits. The definition of positive impact relies heavily on the situational power structures, culture, and social norms of the given community. This workshop will give researchers across the GROUP community the opportunity to explore how we might design or use technologies to maximize wider societal benefits.
