Power & Responsibility Summit 2019

09 October @ 8:45 am - 5:00 pm, British Library Knowledge Centre, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB

Power and Responsibility summit

The DigitalAgenda Power & Responsibility summit explores how technology can respond to the societal and economic issues we face, and debates issues of regulation, trust and the unintended consequences of the digital age.

The 2019 summit will look at the challenges that these issues present, and look at the policy and technology solutions now emerging including the recent “Online Harms White Paper”

Summit Themes:

BUSINESS – Power, responsibility and the economy
Technology is changing our economy fast. But too many business models work against the public interest. How can tech business, and government, do more for the common good?

SOCIETY – Responsible Innovation for good and regulation
How can it make the internet safer? What regulation is needed to ensure a fairer internet? How can we protect innovation?

PEOPLE – Technology, online behaviour and safety
Digital’s effects on online behaviour, mental health and concerns over privacy and online safety. How can we get past the problems that it creates? What are the wellbeing benefits that digital promises for us?
