This unique and innovative conference, now in its seventh year, addresses
the ethical, legal, regulatory, and policy issues that surround the
emergence of new technologies and scientific advances. Drawing on the
combined expertise of leaders in academia, industry, and government, this
conference focuses on finding governance solutions for rapidly changing
technologies. The dual challenge of any governance system is to encourage
research, investment, and development while guarding against potential
risks to health, safety, environment, and society. We confront this
challenge by creating a forum for radically cross-disciplinary discussion
involving experts in law, engineering, science, business, medicine, ethics,
and other fields.

In recent years, these discussions have covered the broadest possible range
of technologies and scientific study, including nanotechnology, artificial
intelligence, robotics, autonomous vehicles, the internet of things,
human-machine interfaces, neuroscience, synthetic biology, genomics,
personalized medicine, telemedicine, human enhancement, gene editing,
surveillance, national security, virtual and augmented reality, blockchain,
autonomous weapon systems, and so on. The value we have uncovered in
combining such a variety of subjects is that governance strategies and
lessons learned in one field can often be applied to others in ways that
generate new breakthroughs. This conference has thus become a go-to event
for forward-looking policy makers, technologists, and business leaders who
are at the forefront of a changing world.
