Digital Ethics Summit 2019

  • Wednesday11Dec 2019

    Time: 8:30 - 17:30

    Recognising, identifying and addressing digital ethical issues.

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

This year’s Summit will take stock and reflect on developments during 2019 and ask whether digital ethics can 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 will examine whether enough progress and action is being made. Through keynote presentations and panel breakout sessions the Summit will showcase practical examples of ethics in action and explore the extent to which ethics is having a real impact and delivering genuine benefits to people's everyday lives.

This year the Summit will also highlight and celebrate people and groups that are leading from the front and moving the digital ethics from debate and discussion to real action. It will also assess the digital ethics community's progress against the eight actions identified in techUK's Digital Ethics in 2019 paper and identify areas where greater collaboration between partners could help the continued development of a functioning and productive digital ethics ecosystem to ensure the UK remains a world leader in responsible tech.

The Summit will again be organised by techUK in partnership with the Wellcome Trust, Digital Catapault, Royal Society, Open Data Institute, the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, the Digital Ethics Lab and other partners. 

Digital Ethics is one of our most popular events and we are expecting a full-house, so make sure to register now for your free place.
