In a world of ongoing, constant disruption, a
whirlwind of investment in technology has rewritten the rules of the game
across many industries.
Is technological innovation actually benefiting human kind? Is it empowering,
or does it encroach on people’s rights to privacy and digital security? Should
humans take precedent over machines when it comes to employment? Should
self-driving cars decide which pedestrian most deserves to survive in the event
of a catastrophic crash? Companies rarely have
policy guidelines in this regard and are unlikely to have the skills to
evaluate the ethical implications of complex programming decisions or, for that
matter algorithms which are often now at the heart of many businesses. This
forum explores the compromises we are now forced to make, as well as looking at
the future impact of technology-based decisions.
