Speaker:

Stephen Pattison, ARM Holdings

Abstract:

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 that 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.
