Brad Smith - Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age — in conversation with David Sanger

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As president of Microsoft, Smith is acutely aware of both the promise and the threat of technology. As he emphasizes in this behind-the-scenes look at one of the world’s most influential companies, he believes it’s incumbent on Big Data not only to advance technology’s benefits as widely as possible but also to take responsibility for the problems it causes. Discussing issues such as privacy, cybercrime and cyberwar, social media, the moral dilemmas of artificial intelligence, big tech's relationship to inequality, and even its consequences for democracy, Smith shows how Microsoft is grappling with a range of unprecedented challenges. Smith will be in conversation with David E. Sanger, national security correspondent for The New York Times.
