The State of Responsible Tech in Business: Artificial Intelligence

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
CIGI Campus Auditorium, 67 Erb Street West, Waterloo, Canada

Feb 19

During the past few years, the conversation about responsible technology has intensified. Increasingly, we are seeing that technology is not and can never be neutral, that it holds significant implications for people and society, and that intelligent technologies have consequences. Threats to democracy and society, as well as their considerable resources and technical capability are not the only issues at play. There are other factors that must be considered: the scale of social media platforms; the technologies on which they are built; and the economic environments in which they operate.

Join us for an evening with CIGI Senior Fellow, Susan Etlinger, who will delve further into these issues and offer her expertise on the state of responsible tech in business, specifically related to artificial intelligence.

Read Susan's latest essay What's So Difficult about Social Media Platform Governance in the CIGI series Models for Platform Governance. Susan has also been a featured TED Speaker - follow the link to watch her TED Talk What do we do with all this big data?
