This paper is a conceptual review around the relationship between technology and inequality. It provides a review of the core themes that are associated with their relationship, underscoring the necessity to bring together two concerns: how we need to improve our understanding of inequality with respect to technology, and how we need to improve our understanding of technology in terms of inequality. It finally provokes a series of questions that are pertinent to get a grasp of the interface between technology, inequality, and development.
