17.00 Guest speaker, Prof. Theodoros Evgeniou: Building A Digital World That Is Safe And Beneficial For All

Almost 25 years after the birth of the commercial internet, and as we are in the middle of the data and AI revolution, cracks in the digital world appear increasingly visible. Online trust & safety or responsible AI, and generally “good tech” (in addition to “tech for good”), are increasingly becoming central in the discussions across all communities, from regulators, to executives, and to civil society (namely, including “the customers” among others).

In this talk the professor will focus on how organizations need to and can rethink about their digital and AI strategies in order not only to maximize their productivity and (immediate) business value but to also minimize new business as well as societal risks the development and deployment of digital technologies can create.
