Exclusive CIO Lunch: The Ethical Operating System- Are you Ready to Game the Future - and Make a Better World?

The Ethical Operating System is designed to help tech companies anticipate the long-term consequences of new technologies -- and safeguard public goods like privacy, truth, democracy, safety, economic security, and our collective mental health. It's already being used by Silicon Valley's leading tech companies to game out the future of virtual and augmented reality, digital advertising, financial tech, facial recognition, genetic manipulation, automation, smart devices, news, online learning and more. The next generation of designers, engineers and business students from Stanford University to MIT are being trained on it. In this keynote, you'll hear from game guru and futurist Jane McGonigal, the lead researcher and interactive designer behind the Ethical OS. You'll immerse yourself in 8 different risk zones, play with three "risky future" scenarios, and craft your own personal checklist of ethical dilemmas most relevant to your organization. Every move we make today changes what's possible in the future. This gameful session will put you in control of the future you're making.
