Keynote: Ethics in the Age of AI

Technological innovations – from exponential increases in computer power to gene editing - create not only phenomenal opportunities for human progress but also societal challenges. In addition to confronting us with totally new frameworks of thought, they are also raising new ethical considerations for the communications industry.  Should the technology be developed in the first place?  What areas need mandatory regulation?  How will privacy be impacted? What values will come under threat? How will we judge safety in the future? How do we involve the public in these discussions? In this keynote address FleishmanHillard's Rachel Catanach will examine the ethical considerations for communicators as we transition to an AI world.
