International Workshop
Ethical implications for 4.0 Revolution

26-28 September 2019,
Saidia, Morocco

Fourth Industrial Revolution, technology is fundamentally impacting, like never before, every aspect of our entire lives. We're facing an inflection point and we are currently in front of some prickly questions regarding potential uses of technology that may not be aligned with thehuman values. But we have to remember here that technology is not inherently good or bad. It's what we do with it that matters. The essential question is, how can the technology industry ensure that its proposals do not mortgage the entire future of humanity?
We need, as the world is turning digital, to take a look to our humanity, giving the most attention to how the world is rapidly changing.
Data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Thingshave overthrown our relationship to knowledge, economy, social life etc.;And it is urgent that every nation or country asks the right questions. It has become deeply irresponsible not to give to that all the necessary intention.
How to manage the world of tomorrow? What values to pass on to future generations?
How to maintain free will and consciousness in the face of technological deferment ?
