Digital ethics resized website 



On 11 December 2019 techUK and partners brought together academics, philosophers, lawyers, technology experts, policy makers and other key stakeholders at techUK’s annual Digital Ethics Summit.

This year’s Summit took stock and reflected on developments during 2019 and asked whether digital ethics could provide real answers to tough, challenging questions. Given the growing scepticism, from some, as to whether digital ethics is really the solution to the issues being raised about the impact of advanced technologies the Summit examined whether enough progress and action were being made. Through keynote presentations and panel breakout sessions the Summit showcased practical examples of ethics in action and explored the extent to which ethics was having a real impact and delivering genuine benefits to people's everyday lives.

We're continuously looking at ways to improve our events. If you haven't already done so, we would be most grateful if you could take 2 minutes to complete our feedback survey

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our sponsors for supporting the Digital Ethics Summit 2019 - Microsoft, Intel, Splunk, Visa and QuantumBlack. It would not be possible for us to run events like this without their valuable support and input.

The Summit was again organised by techUK in partnership with the Wellcome Trust, Digital Catapult, Royal Society, Open Data Institute, the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, the Digital Ethics Lab, Royal Statistical Society, The British Academy, Ada Lovelace Institute, Ethical AI In Education and The Alan Turing Institute.

Finally we would like to thank all our speakers and delegates for joining us at the Summit. We hope to see you all again at the Digital Ethics Summit 2020.
