Over the last few years, both academics and the media have documented the negative effects of automated decision-making (AI) in areas such as policing, finance, credit reporting, and administration of public programmes.

Today, these issues are still prevalent. As AI becomes more widely adopted, pioneering leaders are realising the importance of assessing the impact of technology on both their businesses and society as a whole.

AI can provide unparalleled opportunities, but without the correct processes, it can also have a detrimental impact on people’s futures and a business’s reputation. The need for ethical standards and the perspective of anthropologists has never been more critical.

The Anthropology + Technology conference exists to create dialogue around these important topics. It highlights the opportunities of today’s cutting-edge technology while simultaneously showing how socially-responsible AI is the only way we can all truly benefit.

The conference has been curated to help today’s leading technology companies understand the value of combining teams of technologists with social scientists, and to create a forum for international business leaders, academics, and innovators in the fields of artificial intelligence, computer science, data science, machine learning, and social science to network and share ideas.

This conference will show how more businesses can benefit from developing socially-responsible AI.
