TEC Talks: Corporate Responsibility and Power

Monday, October 25, 2021 12:00 pm EST

Companies—especially those with digital “platform power”—wield an enormous influence over economic, political, and social life in the United States and globally. The massive scale and attendant data collection of these platforms, often coupled with the use of artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies, have given rise to concerns about violations of privacy, bias, discrimination, mis- and disinformation, and more. Can these companies evolve their business models to operate more securely, responsibly, and ethically? Join us as we discuss the challenges and opportunities with Dr. Lauren Rhue, Assistant Professor of Information Systems at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, and Dr. Vanessa Perry, Special Advisor to the Dean’s Office, Professor of Marketing, and Professor of Strategic Management and Public Policy at the George Washington University School of Business, as we explore these issues and more.
