Going BeyondTech - Responsible AI, Diversity & Inclusivity, Tech for Good & Closing the Skills Gap

Today, every business is a tech business. The biggest change we have witnessed as a community has been tech's shift from a standalone industry to one that permeates almost every aspect of modern society, and we are just at the starting line.

If you are not a part of the conversation about change, you cannot affect it. This is where BeyondTech comes in. We want to find real actions that individuals and companies can make to guide tech forward. To this end, we have broken the conference up according to four themes: Responsible AI, Diversity & Inclusivity, Tech for Good and Closing the Skills Gap.

Across two days of talks, and round tables, BeyondTech aims to do four things: take a deep look at the ways in which we frame discussions around the ethics of automation and AI; promote real actions that can be taken to create a diverse and inclusive ecosystem; see how tech can be used to solve some of societies biggest problems and meet the challenge of bridging the skills gap in tech head on.
