What we'll do

Speaker 1: Bronwen Zande, Director @ Soul Solutions

50 Shades of Grey - Ethics In A World of Ever-Growing AI

It is the best of times, and the worst of times. We are in an age where technologists can use their skills to make amazing, positive impacts on people’s lives. With these seemingly boundless possibilities also allows us to slide into a slippery slope where the same technology can be used to harm.
In this session, Bronwen will cover areas of technology that can be used to help or hinder and question the increasing use of AI to bring these abilities into the hands of everyday people. She does not hold the right answers to these questions, instead wants to foster open discussion and questions on our responsibility as ethical technologists to help drive the use of technology for good.

Speaker 2: Saeb Amini, Senior Consultant @ Readify

To blockchain or not to blockchain

Stances on the blockchain are mostly on either extreme of "it's going to solve all of humanity's problems" or "it's the most worthless hype of the decade". Saeb is going to talk about his experience with using blockchain in solving a real-world problem, and how it helped him demystify blockchain and find out which of these stances are correct.
