As digitisation continues to transform all its path, questions are being asked about the risk and impact it has left behind. Have we done enough to minimise the environmental impact? Are we making ethical use of the data for the purpose it was gathered? Are we removing bias from the systems? Are we ensuring that the systems have a positive impact?

This talk will explore the need for responsible computing and discuss practical steps being made by leading organisations.
