Event Details

Join journalist and author Paul Mason; tech entrepreneur, Twitter board member and Doteveryone executive chair Martha Lane Fox; Conservative MP and chairman of the select committee currently investigating fake news Damian Collins; and professor of philosophy and ethics of information at Oxford University Professor Luciano Floridi, for a panel discussion chaired by Observer chief leader writer Sonia Sodha.

The Guardian’s groundbreaking investigation into the Cambridge Analytica scandal has raised questions about technology’s power to restructure our democracy, and where the responsibility of challenging the uncontrolled growth of tech giants lies.

We are entering a critical moment where fiction outperforms reality online, human biases are embedding themselves in vital algorithms and the power of global tech firms is no longer controlled by national borders. But how can we create technology that is truly responsible to society?

Our expert panel of speakers will explore the social and ethical impact of technology, the role of trust in the modern media landscape, and what political leaders can do to protect our democratic processes in the face of rapid technological change. Further panellists to be announced shortly.

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval. Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email
