Eleventh Annual Governance of Emerging Technologies and Science Conference

Event description

  • Open to the public

This unique and innovative conference addresses the ethical, legal, regulatory and policy issues that surround the emergence of new technologies and scientific advances. Drawing on the combined expertise of leaders in academia, industry and government, this conference focuses on finding governance solutions for rapidly changing technologies. In recent years, these discussions have covered the broadest possible range of technologies and scientific study, including nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, autonomous vehicles, the internet of things, human-machine interfaces, neuroscience, synthetic biology, genomics, personalized medicine, telemedicine, human enhancement, gene editing, surveillance, national security, virtual and augmented reality, blockchain, autonomous weapon systems and so on. The value we have uncovered in combining such a variety of subjects is that governance strategies and lessons learned in one field can often be applied to others in ways that generate new breakthroughs. It is a truly interdisciplinary conference of scientists, lawyers, regulators, philosophers, ethicists and more.
