World Ethical Data Forum
War in Ukraine. Looming global recession (another one). Covid-19 aftershocks. Shrinking press freedoms. Climate change. Join the conference on 26-28 October 2022
Today’s world-changing events have a common thread. They – and their outcomes – are being shaped by data-driven technologies.
As the reach and functional importance of these technologies has grown, the issue of who accesses and controls the data and information they produce has become fundamental. Today, the consequences of their use and abuse are felt around the world – in cyberwarfare, climate research, journalism, and beyond – yet the issue remains underexplored. That oversight is also an opportunity: change the way information and its technologies are deployed and we can still give ourselves a shot at improving their consequences.
World Ethical Data Forum returns in October 26 – 28, 2022 to discuss and debate the full scope of interrelated issues around the entire digital ecosystem.
Privacy, democracy, justice, responsibility, transparency and, trustworthiness and our basic human rights will be on the table as we confront the ethical challenges presented by our ever more online lives. Expert speakers and panelists will address issues including cybersecurity and information warfare; data and AI ethics; policymaking, human rights, culture, philosophy, media, futurism, whistleblowing, sustainability, and more.
