Ethics and Society

Building tech that works for everyone


Co-curated with:

Curated with the Ada Lovelace Institute, this stage reminds us that despite the countless positive benefits that technology brings, we need to remain vigilant that deployment is ethical, equitable and safe. From algorithmic bias to unintended consequences, to the broader impacts tech disruption is having on society, this stage examines recent developments in ethics and what next for the future of work.
