Reactivity summit (Formerly Anthropology + Technology Conference) returns online again for the third year on Thursday 20 and Friday May 21, with a “fantastic selection of speakers” and the opportunity to learn and connect with representatives from around the world who are committed to it. Responsibly design and build digital solutions.
This year’s event brings together scientists, researchers and academia, business and public sector leaders to exchange ideas, build networks, and simultaneously investigate how digital technology – including artificial intelligence – is without a break. Can be responsibly built, designed and deployed on innovation. Bristol is a great home for the summit: it is bursting with technological innovation and people want to innovate in a way that produces positive long-term results.
yesterday We shared our 5 pics for the first day. Here are our 5 pics for the second day, Friday 21 may.
# 1: Highlights of the industry: been out of the box since the 2000s
Rakhi Rajani, Chief Digital Officer, Genomics England, will present the day as the industry’s keynote speaker: “Disciplinary hierarchies and disciplinary boundaries often hinder innovation. How do we innovate at ‘intersections’, where brains from different disciplines such as engineering, design and science get out of their boxes and come together instead of competing with each other to generate solutions? Will preside over the rakhi Adam warburton, Head of Digital Products, Cooperatives.
# 2: Data Privacy and Responsibility
Taru Rasta explores how corporations can design responsible and innovative data practices using insights from a project with 7 organizations; Gilbert Hill shares his insights as the CEO of a start-up designed to give people control over their data, how an ethical, humanistic approach can take all of us beyond compliance with data dialogue; And Daniel Stanley explores how we can increase public understanding about the importance of data and its security.
