Disruptive technologies: Risks worth taking?

16 maart 2021 van 9:00 am tot 5:00 pm

Risks and (disruptive) technologies are closely connected. Technologies can reduce risks, but also introduce new ones. Socially disruptive technologies have a huge impact on our lives. Technologies like artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things, gene editing, social robots and geo-engineering fundamentally change society. Artificial intelligence, for example, can reduce health and safety risks or improve user experiences, but can also lead to social disruption through discrimination and exclusion of specific groups of people, filter bubbles and privacy and security risks.

The Society for Risk Analysis-Europe (SRA-E) Benelux invites you to its 2021 Conference on 16 March, which focuses on the Risk-Technology Nexus, and particularly the trade-offs of potentially disruptive technologies. This event is co-organized with the TU/e Center for Humans and Technology.

We welcome researchers, academics, practitioners and policy makers, and of course SRA-E members, to join us as we share the latest insights and practices.
