Microsoft wants its tech to be used for good, not evil, the company's CEO said.
Satya Nadella, speaking Monday at the Wired25 conference in San Francisco, noted that the tech industry has a responsibility for how its technology is used.
"We start from saying, look we want to take tech and empower the world with it," Nadella said.
Big tech has been facing questions lately about who it does business with.
Employees at companies like Google have protested the use of its technology -- from cloud computing to artificial intelligence -- by the Defense Department.
Saudi Arabia has been building relationships in the technology industry, particularly through its partnership with Japanese telecom giant SoftBank.
