Mar 12, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Computers have transformed our lives for decades but their impact is accelerating exponentially with the advent of next-gen algorithms and new hardware platforms in quantum and neuromorphic computing, bringing greater opportunities but also greater challenges and potential harms. What will responsible computing look like in a future where computing is more ubiquitous and powerful than ever? What tools and policies are needed to ensure society continues to reap the benefits of computing without suffering unacceptable consequences? Join experts from Google, Johns Hopkins, Applied Materials, and the U.S. Navy for a thought provoking discussion.
