Will the Coming Tech Revolution be a Force for Good?

Speakers: Mr Stephen Pattison

A new age of technology is fast approaching. But there are many concerns: will cyber criminals ransack our bank account? Will robots take our jobs? Will hostile intelligence agencies undermine our politics and flood us with fake news? Stephen Pattison will consider these issues in the context both of what cutting edge technology can do to help mitigate some of the risks, and what will require a wider policy debate about the ethics of some of the possibilities the technology will create. His starting point is that the new technology can deliver huge benefits for us: but for those benefits to be realised we need to have confidence in it. If the Internet of Things doesn’t empower people, it will fail.

Stephen Pattison is the VP Public Affairs at ARM Holdings plc.
