While doing this work, he noticed that people are hired in technology companies without understanding the ethical and moral consequences of the increasingly complex and automated systems they design and operate. As a result, Brian was inspired to think about the intersection of ethics and technology in today’s world and the future, which led to his writing Cashless Society 101.
