Mark will to covering governance issues relating to data management in the wider society and community context impact by increasing use of artificial intelligence. This is based on recent practitioner research for his 3rd book with Palgrave Macmillan International he coauthored with Dr Felix Hovsepian, the 4th Industrial Revolution: The impact of Artificial Intelligence on Business.

He will focus on how artificial intelligence impacts cross-industry and society issues in ethics, machines and society,  cyber security and the role of the internet and sensor networks in general.

Mark will highlight the importance of legal and commercial jurisprudence over the increased blurring of personal data with commercial, governmental and other interest groups that are increasingly using artificial intelligence for a potentially wide range of monitoring and automation

Mark will describe how “safe spaces” need to be created in the online digital world if we want to protect the liberties and freedoms we enjoy in the Physical world.    This will touch on four to five key learning points from how we are ethically obliged to manage AI and how data and rights need to evolve quickly from the 3rd industrial revolution, also called the “digital revolution”. This era saw the rapid growth of the internet and cloud computing expansion in the 2000’s into the present new era where we are facing the use of artificial intelligence harvested from this data and is commercial and increasingly potentially dangerous use for online influence and bias.
