The power of ethics in the digital age ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) Hong Kong, CFA Institute and the Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts (HKSFA) are proud to present the 2nd Ethics Film Festival 2019.
Themed ‘The power of ethics in the digital age’, the event aims to bring together like-minded professionals to discuss and address the role and importance of ethics in the digital age. What aspects of our lives will be reshaped by the rise of machine intelligence and self-learning computer? Are we facing danger that the world will be controlled by artificial intelligence? What role do human ethics still play under job automation and transformation? You will join fellow elites from the industry in enjoying movies together and engage in ideas exchange afterwards.
The Ethics Film Festival aims to encourage business professionals to navigate their own ethical compass by reflecting on thought-provoking films and participating in active discussions around professional ethics with industry peers. This will provide a strong foundation for any finance professional who is a custodian of trust in an increasingly digital age.
The truth about killer robots When a robot kills a human, who takes the blame?
An eerie, eye-opening work of science nonfiction, The Truth About Killer Robots considers several automation cases, from a factory in Germany to a bomb-carrying police droid in Dallas, raising questions of accountability and morality. Exploring the provocative viewpoints of engineers, journalists and philosophers, the film goes beyond sensational deaths to examine more subtle but pervasive ways that robots affect humanity.
