At this crucial moment in the AI conversation where ethical issues raised by AI have become the global news story discussed in parliaments, offices, schools and homes, this year's Summit has never been more important. The event will evaluate where we are right now, analyse how we shape what comes next, and agree how we can seize this moment to build the right policy, governance and regulatory frameworks and ensure the responsible use of these technologies.

With the global conversation moving forward at pace, this year's Digital Ethics Summit will dive deeper into what international commitments on AI safety really mean in practice, whether we have the right institutions and voices in this debate to make the most of this moment in time, and how we carry this momentum forward into 2024.

This year's Summit will also explore in detail the current state of play with the UK's AI White Paper and the role of the digital ethics community in supporting UK regulators to get this right. Given the concerns being raised about the impact of AI on people, society, the economy and the planet, the Summit will unpack a breadth of topical issues from how we best prepare people for the future of work, to the potential impact of deepfakes ahead of upcoming elections, and the ethical implications of technological advances given the current climate emergency.
