About Us

Launched in 2018 by world-renowned former Google design ethicist Tristan Harris and deeply concerned tech ex-insiders, the Center for Humane Technology (CHT) is an independent nonprofit organization based in San Francisco whose mission is to reverse human downgrading and realign technology with humanity. 

Today’s tech platforms are caught in a race to the bottom of the brain stem to extract human attention. It’s a race we’re all losing. The result: addiction, social isolation, outrage, misinformation, and political polarization—all part of one interconnected system called ​human downgrading.

We envision a world where technology supports our shared well-being, sense-making, democracy, and ability to tackle complex global challenges. CHT’s ultimate aim is to drive a comprehensive shift in product development, business models, policies, and governance structures toward Humane Technology by changing the way technologists think about their work and how they build products.

We use a combination of thought leadership, media and policy pressure, and product inspiration to create market demand and momentum for Humane Technology. We raise awareness for millions of people while advising and mobilizing tech companies, top executives, investors, technologists, and political leaders.
