We are particularly pleased to present the first edition of the ETHICS & TECH report of the OPTIC network. This work, which lasted several months and was enriched by the contributions of contributors and authors from various geographical and intellectual backgrounds, has been designed to provide a synthesis accessible to all those who wish to better understand the collective and contemporary challenges of the digital age on the human, political and even anthropological levels.
