About this Event
Rhodes Technology & Society Forum
'The Realignment Problem: Aligning Technology with our Values'              
Saturday 12th November 2022

IET, 2 Savoy Place, London


Advancements in technology often focus on speed and scale. AI is automating tasks both menial and creative, advancements in biotech are beginning to enable precision medicine for all, and communications platforms let societies interact near the speed of light. It seems like we’re on the precipice of radical innovations — but amid those leaps forward in speed and scale, how should we consider the direction of innovation? Are technologies value-neutral, or value-laden? How should innovation engage with moral and social decisions? And what are the roles of governments, entrepreneurs, corporations, and the public in directing the present and future of technology?

This year’s Rhodes Technology and Society Forum will consider the relationship between technology and values, exploring how innovations shape us and how we can shape them. We will question how (and which) values are represented in our technology today, and how to shape future technology to support dignity, equity, and governance accountable to all. Through keynotes, panel discussions, and opportunities to connect, the Forum will explore a range of perspectives from across cultures and disciplines, creating a conversation that welcomes technologists, policymakers, and leaders from around the globe.
