Friends House, Euston Road, London

New tech new challenges

New technologies are providing new opportunities and will bring with them new challenges for companies and their CSR, Sustainability and Corporate Affairs teams.

Innovations in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, biotechnology, nanotechnology, internet of things, and robotics are now part of future business strategy for companies large and small, across all sectors. Complex challenges arise in using these technologies for social, environmental and economic benefit, and also in anticipating and responding to the ethical issues that arise from their use.

What this seminar is for

This seminar seeks to learn the lessons of the past and explore new thinking and new governance frameworks to help companies and CSR professionals respond in a timely and effective manner to the opportunities and challenges the '4th Industrial Revolution' will bring with it.

Who is it for?

The event will help those in corporate affairs, CSR, sustainability, governance and academia to explore some of the issues around technological innovation and governance and how these can contribute to the building of trustworthiness and earning of trust. Attendees will hear about the latest developments in academia and voluntary governance approaches.

The problem spans a broad range of sectors from pharmaceuticals, to official documents and forged currency. Counterfeited goods fund organised crime, global terrorism and also pose personal safety risks to consumers.
