“There is an immense opportunity to design human-centric systems, such as Contakt World, in a public health environment,” Pahwa said in a statement. “Our approach not only empowers people but meets users where they are while being mindful of our role in creating a meaningful experience and not limiting our solutions by the boundaries of where technology can reach.”

Ms. Pahwa will be a critical part of educating the public and overcoming the trust barrier to scale adoption of our platform while also promoting our core values of humane and ethical surveillance.”
