Description

Join Prof. Irene Ng from the Hub of All Things and the Universities of Warwick and Cambridge to talk about users - their personal data, user accounts, security and value.

PERSONAL DATA APP & ECONOMY PUB NIGHT

In the first half of this century, the growth of the digital self has been explosive. Since at least the mid 2000's, the increasing ubiquity of tech has made our digital lives ever more prevalent, relevant, and valuable. We are no longer Internet users, we're Internet citizens.

Today, personalisation is a cruel parody of what it could be. Advertising intrudes, to the extent where even when it works it annoys, and the reality of privacy today has become a fiction. We are lucky if our most trusted services only use our most personal information for good - not using it at all has gone completely off the table.

The digital economy that reaps of this reality does not have to be dystopian. There is infinitely more wealth in the personal data of the future than there is heartache and pain. But to realise it we need to begin to ask ourselves: Who owns the user? Do they own themselves? Or do we own them? And why?

Join Irene Ng from the Hub of All Things, a data privacy and empowerment technology, for a discussion on the future of the digital economy, and explore with us the opportunity and worth of a personal data economy that holds the empowered individual at its core. December 12, 2017 in Boston, 5-7pm Eastern.
