The Pyramid of Alignment



Technology comes to play extensively in all the 3 pyramids of society, wellbeing and freedom. And there are common overlaps in all of them. Guidelines, design philosophy, patterns and best-practices, ethics, law and regulations, certification, tests and tools. In order to adopt the right solutions towards humane technology, there is a continuous process of discovery, adoption of what works and finally - when our insights become clear - the ability to evolve technology responsibly.

Alignment involves the following aspects:

  • Humane design: design technology in a way that aligns with human needs and aspirations
  • Ethics: ethical issues about technology
  • Best-practices: practices, tips and guides derived from experience
  • Standards: protocols, methodologies and common formats agreed among communities
