Future Digital Ethics: Contact Tracing and AI

— Virtual Event
TalkBox presents another entertaining and illuminating virtual event.
price: Headfirst Tickets


Science Fiction is the closest many of us get to philosophy – to some, it is philosophy in fancy dress as the genre helps us explore possible futures free from the burdens of our present-day realities. What Science Fiction doesn’t do is help us explore conversations about the future we want to have, which is the subject of this talk by Charles Radclyffe as he explores the technological basis for our near-term and medium-term futures, and asks the questions that only some of those in the technology industry are asking – what kind of world do we want to create?

While we are increasingly dependent on technology, more-so given the pandemic lockdown, we urgently need to explore this question; particularly given the level of mistrust people have towards technology and the technology industry. Why is 5G so feared? Why are some people so angry about things like contact-tracing? And yet why at the same time have we enabled some tech firms to gain such a foothold in our economy and way of life, that we have less control over actively choosing the futures we want?

This talk will cover aspects of technology, philosophy, politics and economics – and hopefully, will provoke more conversations around our relationship with technology, both now, and in the future.

Date: 27.05.2020
Talk Starts: 7:30 pm
