Ethics and Responsibility in the AI and IoT Age


Garry Kasparov


Ondrej Vlcek


Since Garry Kasparov’s legendary chess matches against IBM Deep Blue in the 1990s, he has been engaged with human-machine interaction, and human rights. As a Soviet citizen, he has seen up close how governments misuse their control of information. At SXSW, he and Ondrej Vlcek, Avast EVP & CTO, will discuss the rise of intelligent technologies, the questions of ethics, and the right to privacy in our connected world. Vlcek has driven AI in security since its early days.

As IoT and AI-based technologies enter our lives, they provide new opportunities for privacy violations and surveillance for cybercriminals, and governments. Kasparov and Vlcek will discuss new challenges we face, and what regulators and industry leaders can do to protect people's privacy and uphold ethical standards.
