Keynote: Responsibility in the Data Age

We are entering the data age.  Our entire society is increasingly pervaded by digital technology.  Individuals, businesses and government now rely on computing systems to operate, to grow and to improve.  Success at nearly any endeavour now involves data.  Software is rapidly advancing to meet these needs.  This has happened so quickly that some social aspects have been neglected.  As we become aware of technology’s potential negative impacts on society, we have a responsibility.  We must now develop methods to regulate and validate that our systems are worthy of trust and adoption.  Just as 100 years ago automobiles required required us to develop new safety standards, licensing regimes, insurance, taxation, etc., now we must similarly integrate data technology into our society, so that it might better achieve its promise.
