It was an honour to be part of such an interesting and stimulating event, and a privilege to have been given an opportunity to share some of my thoughts on things that are so important to me!

I wanted to share my thoughts on how humanity is struggling to cope with the pace of technological change that is being driven by commercial and scientific advances in technology, and the possible dangers that could exist in a world where the powerful are able to use technology as a tool to control the weak.

From Police Robots to Armed Drones, I touched upon some things that I think everyone should know about, and audience seemed to enjoy it.
