This international AI conference is bringing together technologists, lawyers, and social scientists to have open conversations about responsible technology. Responsible tech is about designing innovative new digital technologies that have a positive impact on people and society. The current 'techlash' means that businesses developing digital products and services – even those that might be considered fairly innocuous – are facing far more scrutiny, from the public and regulators, and even their own employees, than might otherwise have been the case a few years ago.  Business leaders should start proactively thinking about ‘responsible tech’ to retain their highly-skilled workforce, avoid reputational damage, and ensure readiness for tech regulation. Responsible tech requires leadership and accountability, and a new approach. The Anthropology + Technology Conference at the Watershed on October 3 is forging ahead on this front and inviting the tech industry to start thinking about the societal impact of their innovations alongside scientists who have deep knowledge of and about society: social scientists. The social impact of algorithmic decision-making, and that the so-called “fourth industrial revolution” is largely being driven by technologists. We need a broader conversation. It’s a conversation that many forward-thinking tech leaders are welcoming. As Mark Woods, Head of Autonomy and Robotics Group at SCISYS UK, said in a recent interview, “This conference offers technologists an opportunity to hear different perspectives on our work and vice versa…it will help us build better products that are sustainable and impactful in a positive way…I would say register asap!”. ** A very limited number of tickets are available via EventBrite.
