DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY MEETS ETHICS: HOW TO THINK ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOOD WHEN YOU ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
Innovation and digital technology are changing the world every day, bit by bit. Innovations in domains like the Internet of Things and Artificial intelligence are our best bet for sustainability and prosperity, and our reliance on them (especially after the pandemic) cannot be overstated. At the same time, these technologies must be handled with care, since they can lead to concerns and risks related to discrimination, excess energy consumption, problems with safety and security. This talk shows how governments around the world are trying to embed sustainability and ethical alignment in the policy framework for digital technologies: an endeavour that critically requires dialogue with the innovation community.
