TECHNOLOGY & LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Exponential Technologies & Ethics

Defining your compass. Navigating through chaos and change.

PROGRAM
DESCRIPTION

What should we do in a world where everything is connected and everything possible? Should we just let the technology evolve and see what happens?

Exponential Technologies will advance humankind drastically in the next years and we will be facing the very big questions where we need to answer the role of human being in all domains. It’s time to step up our ethical decision making skills and get into discussion to shape a desirable future for all of us.

Ethics is not only a great playground to get into debate but also a fantastic compass to keep us on track and -at least- have the arguments needed.
