Tech 2025 Reunion: What Our Past Most Popular Events Has Taught Us About How to Succeed in the Future

Today's technology ethics are messy. Somebody's gotta clean it up. 🤷‍♀️

Dirty Ethics is our new Spring/Summer event series, where people can participate in breakfast or lunchtime informal conversation groups,  moderated by ethics experts, on the most pressing and messiest ethical issues that we as a society are grappling with implementing emerging technologies that will completely reorder or world and redefine our reality (especially AI).

Experts across the board agree that these issues are so complicated, and unprecedented (like algorithmic bias and fairness), that we should all be having these discussions far more frequently (in as many diverse settings as possible). We couldn't agree more! 

The goal of Dirty Ethics is to bring you substantive and information discussions about these thorny ethics issues, in a light, engaging way, over a meal, with various experts you can ask questions of and engage with (while meeting new people who are also interested in same topics as you).  Guest moderators will guide the live discussion and the Q&A with guest expert speakers who will join via live video conference, when we have them.

Conversation groups will be small (no more than 20 people). Drop by in the morning and grab a cup of coffee and a bagel, or during lunch (bring your own brown bag lunch!) for an insightful and enlightening discussion and networking.
