|Original uncertainty examples
|Is the tech going to help rural people at low cost? ~ How can we ensure any digital support systems are available to everyone who wants to use them, irrespective of income, residency, ethnicity, age etc etc? (I mention these particular social factors as they can limit some people in accessing digital support - eg homeless, older people etc). ~ How could digital technology be used to help people with multiple needs - mental ill-health, substance use dependence, homelessness, and frequent contact with the criminal justice system - particularly where they don't have regular access to technology themselves?
