…more to be announced soon!


Our world is increasingly digital and connected, and data is being produced at extraordinary, exponentially increasing rates. As a result, data analytics and artificial intelligence are enabling improvements in everything from product design to business operations, from customer experiences to civic engagement. And new societal transformations powered by data and analytics are on the horizon, including autonomous vehicles, and smart and safe buildings and cities. However, with growing concerns around personal privacy, data security, and the power of influence that data and AI provide, many are wondering what the future holds for our society. Can our governance structures—laws, ordinances, policies, procedures, and even cultural norms—evolve rapidly enough? What is the balance between social good and potential risks and dangers? Join us as we address these concerns by hosting a debate with technology and policy leaders with wide-ranging perspectives on the implications of data, personal privacy, and ethics of new technologies that will shape our future.
