RSA President’s Lecture: The Technologist’s Dilemma | Mustafa Suleyman | RSA Replay

It’s no secret that technology companies are changing the world. But as technology plays a larger role in key social institutions we value and revere—from healthcare to electoral politics—guaranteeing a positive impact on society has become far more complex than many in the sector ever imagined. Politicians and commentators alike have reflected that the Internet has brought us far from the “more humane and fair civilization” John Perry Barlow’s 1996 Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace promised. And now, the industry must wrestle with the ramifications of its actions and the proper recourse. In his 2017 RSA President’s Lecture, Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder and Head of Applied AI at DeepMind, argues for up-ending the processes by which technology is developed and deployed, and proposes new ways to ensure it contributes to greater economic and social justice around the world. The event will be introduced by HRH The Princess Royal, RSA President and Vikki Heywood CBE, RSA Chairman.
