Tech Faculty lecture on ethics and new technologies

We’re delighted that this year’s Tech Faculty Lecture will be given by Professor Luciano Floridi, of the Oxford Internet Institute. He has been a leading figure in the tech ethics field for many years and his lecture is a great opportunity to pick up on some of the themes raised in our recent report New technologies, ethics and accountability.

Prof Floridi is involved in a number of the frameworks and principles being developed around the ethics of AI, and he will reflect on the extent to which we’re making real progress here, as opposed to just creating lots of noise. What practical tools are out there to help businesses use technology more ethically? Could professional codes of conduct help? Or do we need regulation to change behaviour in practice?

Rachel Coldicutt, CEO of doteveryone, will give a short response about responsible tech, and I will complete the speaker line-up to talk about the role of the profession and the key findings of our report.

The event is free and will take place on the evening of 17 September at Chartered Accountants’ Hall. Booking is now open and you can attend in person or online through our livestream.
