“The Center for Leadership Ethics has a penchant for identifying, showcasing, and unpacking emergent ethical issues that have profound societal implications. Over the years, our Executive Ethics Symposium has examined socially responsible investing, facial recognition technology, and cryptocurrency. This year, we’ll tee up the nascent technology, ChatGPT. ChatGPT has taken the business and educational sector by storm. The technology holds great promise, but also presents various perils. The Executive Ethics Symposium will assemble a panel of world experts to understand the impacts of ChatGPT and provide thoughtful, practical, and ethical suggestions for the responsible use of ChatGPT that will benefit all stakeholders.”
The 2023 Executive Ethics Symposium will feature prominent industry leaders, esteemed scholars, and experts in artificial intelligence and ethics as panelists. Doug Zanes (founder and attorney at Zanes Law Injury Lawyers) and his wife Claudia, who are honored to support this event, emphasize the value it brings to the business community at local, national, and international levels.
