The rapid pace of emerging technologies means we are already seeing a significant social impact. Our conference will bring together anthropologists and technologists to foster dialogue and collaboration across the disciplines.
Together we can build a future in which socially-responsible AI is the norm.
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. As such, the need for ethical standards and the presence 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.
Early AI adopters and innovative organisations such as Intel, Google, Microsoft, Nissan, and Volvo have already embedded anthropologists into their organisations.
This event will show how more businesses can benefit from taking a similar approach.
A day of dialogue + collaboration
Our conference brings together technologists, who are working on emerging technology projects related to AI, and anthropologists to foster dialogue and collaboration across the disciplines.
The conference has been curated to help today’s leading technology companies understand the significant value of combining teams of technologists with social scientists. Together we can build a future in which socially-responsible AI is the norm.
