Event description

Description

The Chinese government plans to launch its Social Credit System in 2020. The aim? To judge the trustworthiness – or otherwise – of its 1.3 billion residents. The behaviour of every single citizen and legal person (which includes every company or other entity)in China will be rated and ranked, whether they like it or not. What are the possible consequences? How will it change the way we live? Join The Economist Club meeting to discuss it.

Share your opinion at the upcoming The Economist Club meeting 'When Big Data Meets Big Brother' on Thu, Nov 23rd, 19:15-20:30 in Pacific Bar, 8/F, Conrad Hong Kong.

It's free to participate, but we would order a drink as a courtesy to the venue.

Meeting Format

First we meet and introduce to each other. Then depending how many people are joining, we split into sub-groups of three-four people for discussion on the topic. One from the group begins by introducing key points from suggested article (i.e. what she/he remembers, was impressed by), others add and follow the conversation. Questions, new paths for discussions, personal experience, and opinions are highly encouraged. The event will be concluded with sharing insights to the whole group.
