About Tools and Weapons

Co-written with Carol Ann Browne, with a foreword from Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Tools and Weapons is based on Brad Smith’s core philosophy: “when your technology changes the world, you bear a responsibility to help address the world you have helped create.”

Under that ethos, the publication explores the approaches that are needed today to ensure that technology is used for good, rather than evil.
