Ethics and Technology: Will the Transition be Just and Orderly?


19 Aug 2020 @ 10:30 am (+8 GMT)

It is now widely expected that the development and application of new technologies will bring about progress that amounts to civilisational change. Without care, change will be accompanied by an uneven distribution of burdens and benefits — both between societies and within them.

AICB, in collaboration with The Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII) and the Islamic Banking & Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM), analyses the implications of this change for bankers and the wider society and economy in which they participate.

“Ethics and Technology: Will the Transition be Just and Orderly?”

Join Dr Simon Longstaff and Dr Dzaharudin Mansor as they explore the role of ethical restraint in harnessing the potential of technology while avoiding a dystopian future. Our panel of speakers will also share their knowledge on the core principles that can guide the design, development and deployment of new technologies, and discuss the role of banking and finance in ensuring a just and orderly transition.

As an AICB member, you are entitled to register for this webinar with our compliments.
