With the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal keeping security practitioners and their lawyers up at night, and rightly so, it is very likely there is second guessing going on over the digital transformation happening in organizations. Across all functions — marketing, sales, LOBs, support — the "go digital, go cognitive, go AI at all costs” is being questioned.
But, this is not the time to second guess or slow down — it is the time to actually stop — yes, stop. It is time to put some really strong ethical foundations in place that thus far have been willfully ignored or postponed and then hit the accelerator pedal.
This session will talk about the "four horsemen of unethical digital transformation" and the need for "the three musketeers of morality" to lay out a foundation of four ethical pillars. These pillars will hold organizations in good stead as they kick-start their ride into the AI-driven future with gusto. The age of content creation, social evangelization, and follower creation is fraught with ethical issues, the three musketeers of morality provide an actionable framework.
As a content producer myself — blogging, podcasting, video logging — I have a special interest in ConTech and my experience as a former high-tech executive means I understand how technology works. Having good cognition of both sides of this complex issue, I am able to lay out a pragmatic path forward.
