As humans rely more on artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics, we encounter both enormous opportunities and great risk. Public debate and discussion has spiked in response — arguing the effects on the workforce, social justice, fairness, privacy and many other sectors of society.

This two-day conference brings together thought leaders from academia, industry, government and the media to go beyond the slogans and soundbites. These interdisciplinary talks aim to engage all affected communities, and identify ways in which new technologies support and advance humanity.
