From AI to automation to big data, the impact of technological developments has never been greater. The rapid pace of change has created enormous benefits that could only have been dreamed of a generation ago.

Alongside these benefits, the pace of change has also brought unintended consequences. Issues like fake news, data harvesting, cybercrime, and bias in algorithms have begun to shake our trust in the organisations behind the technology – and in the technology itself.

Digital activist and CEO of Corsham Institute Rachel Neaman looks at innovative ways to rebalance the relationship between humans and technology, and exploit digital technologies for social and economic good.

Rachel joins us as part of our year-long events programme in partnership with the British Embassy, bringing the best of British entrepreneurs, thinkers and innovators to Lisbon.
