Ely Cathedral Business Group Autumn Discussion – How to be Good

October 11, 2018 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm

To be a good doctor means more than just being good at medicine. Technical excellence is only part of any profession’s definition of goodness. But how, in today’s world, do you work out what goodness means in your profession?

The Ely Cathedral Business Group are delighted to welcome speakers from the Cathedral’s ‘How to be Good’ series to join us for our annual Autumn Discussion and debate under the awe-inspiring octagon tower. They will be comparing notes, and bringing together insights from all sessions in a wide-ranging debate. We’re also thrilled to be joined by Mike Bushore, CEO of Tyler Capital, who will discuss the challenges of programming ethical responses into robots deployed in the futures market on the trading floor.

• 6.45pm – Wine Reception / Networking

• 7.10pm – Welcome, and Introduction by Francis Spufford

• 7.30pm – Talk by Mike Bushore, AI Expert

• 8pm – Q&A and Discussion
