This virtual webinar is about the practices, policies and principles governing technology development and adoption. The discussion will explore what it will take to build trust and unlock the value of digital technologies for the common good.

Topics of discussion:
• Responsible AI as a force for good
What are the main elements of ethical artificial intelligence? What steps need to be taken to unlock the benefits of responsible and accountable digital technologies and promote human, social and environmental well-being?

• A question of trust
As we become increasingly reliant on digital systems and ethical concerns mount, how can the level of risk in the technology be determined and minimised? Where do roles and responsibilities around safety and trustworthy AI lie? How can organisations enhance their ability to innovate whilst earning and retaining public trust?

• Approaches to regulation and governance
What progress has been made in AI regulation? How do approaches compare and contrast and what are the vital components of effective governance? How can different supervisory authorities coordinate on legal frameworks and manage compliance? When incorporating climate impact factors into digital strategies and regulation, what should be taken into account?

Industry leaders share their unique thoughts:

• What are the main elements of ethical artificial intelligence? What steps need to be taken to unlock the benefits of responsible and accountable digital technolgies and promote human, social and environmental well-being?
• Where do roles and responsibilities around safety and trustworthy AI lie? How can organisations enhance their ability to innovate whilst earning and retaining public trust in AI?

WHY ATTEND?
As the development of cutting-edge technologies gathers pace, governments and organisations are grappling with the complex ethical and moral challenges that they face; concerns around such issues as privacy, bias, safety and trust are more pressing than ever. In addition to a lack of public confidence, there is insufficient clarity around the roles and responsibilities of regulators, developers, providers and users. Comprehensive frameworks and effective governance are needed to ensure the ethical and responsible use of digital technologies, such as AI, and to help realise their benefits for business and society. However with diverse and complex applications and rapidly evolving technologies it is no easy task to devise and implement coherent and balanced regulation which will safeguard against harm whilst enabling the benefits of advanced solutions to be fully realised.
