Community: Ethics at the Frontier of Technology

  • June 28, 2019
  • 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
  • BU Questrom School of Business


The Susilo Institute hosts an Annual Symposium that examines business ethics issues from a variety of stakeholder perspectives. This flagship event draws academics and practitioners from throughout the world who seek to explore and exchange ideas surrounding the role of ethics in a changing global economy.

This year, the conference will take place on June 28, 2019 at BU Questrom School of Business. Throughout the day, we will have four keynote presentations, covering topics from behavioral economics for social good, to moral dilemmas in AI, to CSR, to social impact investing— all with an eye on the opportunities and challenges presented by digitization (such as privacy and financial inclusion and wellbeing). The keynotes will be complemented by a moderated panel with industry experts and policy experts (ranging from BioPharma to FinTech to Digital Marketing to the Sharing Economy and changed employment and labor conditions), and structured breakout discussions, led by Susilo faculty, to explore relevant ethical issues in their respective industries. The day will close with a networking reception.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Dr. Edmond Awad from the Moral Machine project at the MIT Media Lab (focus: moral dilemmas of self-driving cars and differences across national cultures), Prof. Chiara Longoni from BU Questrom on Consumer Reluctance Toward Medical AI, Dr. Varun Gauri, co-director of the Mind, Behavior, and Development unit (eMBed) at the World Bank in DC (focus: behavioral science interventions for reducing poverty and increasing prosperity), and Sarah Drinkwater, Director of the Tech and Society Solutions Lab at Omidyar Network.
