Tech companies ask: "What is the future of technology?"
The Tech Lab asks, "What is the future of technology and society?"

The Public Interest Tech Lab at Harvard provides Harvard students and faculty with access to technological infrastructures, gadgets, algorithms, know-how and key resources to better understand how technology can either worsen or address society’s greatest challenges. At the Lab, we cultivate a practical, hands-on understanding of today’s technologies that deepens understanding and uncovers hidden insights. We’re creating an environment that enables students and faculty to work toward a society where technologists expect and demand technologies be created and used responsibly, shine a light on where technology can better deliver services, and question the appropriate use and design of certain technologies should be created at all.

The Tech Lab is a technology sandbox: here, you can explore and experience technology in a way that deepens your understanding of possible futures.
