Strata Data Ethics Summit

9:00am - 5:00pm, Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Technology helps people augment their abilities. And, from the Gutenberg Bible to robotics, tech has always had ethical implications. But while many technologies have narrow implications, data touches everything. It is us. Data is where the rubber of humanity meets the road of technology—and we're ill-prepared for the impact.

From data breaches, to campaign influence, to fraud, to equality, data ethics are at the forefront of today's headlines. In this day-long Strata Data event, Altimeter analyst, Susan Etlinger, and Strata Chair, Alistair Croll, bring together a packed lineup of academics, practitioners, and innovators for a deep dive into the thorny issues of data and algorithms, and how establishing and reinforcing ethical techonology norms can not only mitigate risk, but drive innovation.
