Designer babies, autonomous vehicles, addictive social media algorithms and seemingly biased Artificial Intelligence systems; technological developments bring about moral dilemmas and questions on the ethical framework of technology.

As an 2018 Forbes article tells us: “Technology doesn’t police itself. New technologies require us to pay attention, voice our concerns constructively, and demand accountability when people are harmed.”

Exponential Technologies, like artificial intelligence are going to overhaul the way we live and work. But will the changes it brings be for the better? As the technology slowly develops whether it will end up doing us more harm than good is a question at the top of everyone’s mind.

Diederick Croese, CEO of SingularityU Benelux, will give an overview of developments in different exponential technologies, and will tie these technologies into questions on morality, desirability, and the future of what it means to be human.
