About this Event

This BTS will be focused around ethics in technology. Following our debut event at the end of 2019, the ethics angle undoubtedly sparked the most conversation and within this seemed always to return to “What is the cost of progress?”. With this in mind, we want to examine how we can collectively contribute to a more positive tomorrow by creating more balanced, ethical products.

Ultimately, what is the cost (ethically) to society to achieve progress?

With the panel discussion hosted by BJSS’ Bobbu Abadeer and a full panel to be announced, we will look to cover:

- Do you think it’s been worth it?
- How can you reduce the cost?
- Do we need to redefine progress?

This is an interactive event - we want to know what you think and to share your opinions! Our panellists will have some pre-planned opinions/ideas to hand, but the discussion will ultimately end up in your hands.

Breaking the mold from traditional meetups, we’ll pass the ropes to our guests to further the conversation in a small group format (fuelled by pizza and drinks, of course!). We want you to be heard and new ideas to be shared so come geared up for an evening of insight!Doors will open at 18.00 and our panel debate kicks off at 18.30.

See the full agenda below:

18.00 – Doors open - networking & drinks

19.25 – Break off into small group debates (and pizza)
