Tech Ethics and Governance: 2019 Conference on the Ethics of Emerging Tech

The Ahmadieh Family Conference Room, West Duke, Room 101 (1364 Campus Drive, Durham, NC) - Thursday, April 18 - Friday, April 19 - 12:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Emerging tech–including AI, algorithmic decision making, predictive analytics, cybersurveillance, and cyberwar–is forcing a re-evaluation of the relationship between the citizen, the state, and tech corporations. The shift of power invites a robust dialogue on the ethics of the deployment of these technologies and their impact. This conference, hosted by the Kenan Institute for Ethics, will examine the ethical considerations that attach to the increasing reach of emerging tech, and the regulatory and tech governance models necessary to protect an open democratic society.

Rubenstein Fellow, Sarah Bloom Raskin, will speak at the evening reception, framing issues such as: (1) how best to regulate and govern emerging tech in ethical ways; (2) data privacy and information security; (3) algorithmic decision-making and accountability; and (4) cyberwar and information warfare.
