Why prejudice and bias are holding IT back

Our keynote session looks at the experiences of often side-lined members of society, specifically on gender, age, ethnicity and disability.

  • Debate 1: inclusion - how IT is doing, where we can improve, and why we need to get it right
  • Debate 2: perspective from the next generation - a youth-hosted debate

Why AI in the real-world is not where we think it is

Luciano Floridi, author of 'The Fourth Revolution', kickstarts the afternoon with a controversial keynote about the positive potential for AI, and the limitations.

  • Debate 1: how do we better communicate the benefits of AI and its concerns, so we build trust
  • Debate 2: what skills are needed for a digital workforce of the future - an employer-led debate
