The Power of Ethics in the Digital Age
ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) Hong Kong, CFA Institute and the Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts (HKSFA) are proud to present the 2nd Ethics Film Festival 2019
Themed ‘The power of ethics in the digital age’, the event aims to bring together like-minded professionals to discuss and address the role and importance of ethics in the digital age. What aspects of our lives will be reshaped by the rise of machine intelligence and self-learning computer? Are we facing danger that the world will be controlled by artificial intelligence? What role do human ethics still play under job automation and transformation? You will join fellow elites from the industry in enjoying movies together and engage in ideas exchange afterwards.
The Ethics Film Festival aims to encourage business professionals to navigate their own ethical compass by reflecting on thought-provoking films and participating in active discussions around professional ethics with industry peers. This will provide a strong foundation for any finance professional who is a custodian of trust in an increasingly digital age.
This is part of HKSFA's global campaign to mark the occasion of the Global Ethics Day 2019.


Do you Trust this Computer?
Artificial Intelligence: Monster or Shangri-La?

Science fiction has long anticipated the rise of machine intelligence. Today, a new generation of self-learning computers is reshaping every aspect of our lives. Will AI usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention?
