When we create new technologies, we want security and privacy, economic prosperity and sustainability, accountability but insist on confidentiality. The reality is that it is difficult to embed all of these values in one pass. As technologies get built, it also elucidates some values we hold to a higher regard than others.

To cope with moral overload, some have suggested that we start designing security and privacy controls as a gradient. Or perhaps certain controls get a toggle on/off switch.

We’re also seeing this moral dilemma in AI – is the technology too volatile or perhaps proper data governance is the answer?
