Leaders in Change is an established forum for leaders in the digital industry to talk about key areas of change they are driving, with conversations ranging from diversity and product development through to blockchain and automation.

Our first event of 2019 will be led by designer and tech ethics consultant Cennydd Bowles. He will lead an interactive session on the future of ethics.

The details

Technology was never neutral; its social, political, and moral impacts have become painfully clear. But the stakes will only get higher as connected cameras will watch over the city, algorithms oversee society’s most critical decisions, and transport, jobs, and even war will become automated. The tech industry hasn’t yet earned the trust these technologies demand.

Drawing on years of research for his new book Future Ethics, designer Cennydd Bowles will illuminate the moral challenges that lie ahead for technologists, and discuss how practitioners and companies can create more thoughtful, ethical products for future generations.

You will leave this session with insights on:

  • How technology is impacting our social, political and moral world
  • The big challenges for the industry
  • Some of the ethical principles and methods technologists can use to build a fairer future

We are once more kindly hosted by our friends at Capital One in their stunning offices in Old Street.
