The participants in the events' series were very keen to compliment the organizers. Here are some of the testimonials sent after the events:
"For such a complex topic as AI ethics, it is very important to involve all the representatives from different fields such as IT, science, government, law, and even philosophy. I really appreciate the opportunity to be one of those to talk about the risks and the need for structure and balanced regulations, still, looking forward very optimistically with the perspective that there is no right or wrong, black or white AI future. When talking and working together with all the parties involved there is a great chance to create the supply of solutions that would be accountable, secure and human rights centric," said Kamilè Valatkaite, Legal Counsel at Telia Company.
"TECH Conference Europe is an amazing hub that - even being virtual - allowed us to make valuable contacts and find like-minded professionals; it really and inspired productive cooperation. The conference is not simply about technology as a tool; it is about the technology-fueled journey. This journey is actually changing important spheres of everyday life - education, health, finance, and fashion. Yes, I argue that fashion is also an important part of our life - whether you look at it as the second-largest polluter, the blast of creativity, a marketing tool, or something that has completely changed. Once the change is happening, it is wise to be part of it, to understand it, to make a positive impact. Knowledge sharing is one of many ways to do that.
The organizers not only have a fantastic network and a clear understanding of what professionals need, but also an intuition regarding how to connect dots that can only be built with time. My sincere thanks for allowing me to be part of this!", said Jovita Gabnienè, Attorney at Law and Head of the Litigation and Investigations Team at Ellex Valiunas.
