Accompanying the revolution of transformative biotechnology and quantum computing, what ethical questions do we face?
Who will develop and have access to the technology, how will users engage with it, how should it be regulated, and who should decide? These are just some of the ethical considerations posed in this thought-provoking discussion.
This discussion will be led by Ilana Wisby, CEO of Oxford Quantum Circuits, who will be joined by a panel consisting of thought leaders to explore the many dimensions of ethics in a technological world.
