The Anthropology + Technology Conference 2020 is now in its second year. Our international conference brings together technologists, who are working on emerging technology projects related to AI, and social scientists to foster dialogue and collaboration across the disciplines.
In developing emerging technologies it is important to address algorithmic bias, which reflect and amplify existing social inequalities. Otherwise these technologies will continue to perpetuate inequalities and social injustice.
The conference has been curated to help today’s leading technology companies understand the significant value of combining teams of technologists with social scientists. Because unless we act now — together — social and economic divides will be further deepened and systems of oppression will continue to be automated.
This year there are three streams: fintech, health tech, and smart cities. You’ll hear experts from anthropology, artificial intelligence, computer science, cybersecurity, data science, digital sociology, economics, human rights, and medicine. Join us and be part of this ground-breaking and unique event.
Together we can build a future in which socially-responsible AI is the norm.
