CIHX hosts a panel discussion at ERPBSS 2022 – "Humanising Technology: The Role of Policy, Law and Ethics in Technological Innovation"

  • February 25 2022

As part of the Sixth International Conference on Emerging Research Paradigms in Business and Social Sciences and in line with one of the key values of the Centre for Innovation in Human Experience (CIHX) at Middlesex University Dubai, we organised an exciting panel discussion, that explored the role of policy, law, and ethics within technological innovation. Main themes of the discussion included the legality of autonomous AI, the role of education in the context of the future, financial implications, and environmental considerations. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the topic and the diverse backgrounds of our expert panel, the session was broad in its scope and covered various topics within the concept of “humanising” technology, including practical suggestions for incorporating these values. 

The panel included experts across various disciplines –
