WEBINAR: Global Goodness - Discussions on Global Business Ethics: Futures of Technology
WHEN: October 11th at 2:15 - 3:15pm
2:15-3:15pm Panelists' discussion:
Philosopher, Professor of Practice at Turku School of Economics Maija-Riitta Ollila will discuss the topics with leading specialists in their fields:
- Professor Toni Ahlqvist (Finland Futures Research Centre (FFRC), University of Turku)
- Adjunct professor Kai Kimppa (Future ethics, Turku School of Economics, University of Turku)
- Chair of the board of directors, PhD Ville Voipio (Vaisala Ltd)
New technologies are changing people and societies at an accelerating rate. But can we direct the development of technological innovations? Our discussion will also reveal what future scenarios futurists have created about technological change. How will working life be transformed in the future? Should we be concerned about the ethical problems that, for example, digitalization, artificial intelligence, and synthetic biology may cause? Or do technologies actually save the world by helping to solve wicked problems, like climate change? What should the agents of civil society, politics, and business do to make technology work beneficially?
The webinar is free for all to attend, welcome!
