Inducing Ethics: How to Regulate the Internet and What that means for Business

This talk, given by former Google consultant and author of "Automating Humanity", Joe Toscano, will give you an insider's perspective on everything Big Tech doesn't want you thinking about: Everything from the addictions being installed at a global scale to the profits being driven by fake news and disinformation, to the way internet giants are manipulating the world for profit and using our data to train systems that will automate jobs at an explosive, unprecedented scale. Toscano will then critically analyze these issues and suggesting how we can create proactive, adaptable regulation that satisfies both the needs of consumer safety and commercial success in the international economy. And he will do it in a way that allows you to begin making change in your company today, before regulation makes the decision for you.

This talk will reveal truths about the Internet that you've never considered before and suggest actionable ways for us to clean up the issues at hand.

====== ABOUT THE SPEAKER =======

Joe Toscano is a former Experience Design Consultant for Google, and has won international awards for his work, including Cannes Lions, Clios, and more. He also writes for international publications like InVision, Smashing Mag, Adweek, and has been featured in several others. However, in 2017 Toscano decided to step away from his role consulting for Google, due to ethical concerns.

Since leaving his role Toscano has been focused on bringing technology literacy to the masses, which has led to speaking and consulting engagements across the world—more than 19 different states or nations on four different continents in less than a year. These events have ranged from lectures in university classrooms to keynote engagements with world leaders to private consultations with some of the world’s leading digital corporations, including R/GA, IBM, SAP, and many more, but he couldn't be more excited to speak with everyone at DSW!
