Digital Change // Change Digital

The epic battle between the tin foil hats and the radical ignorants (Come and go during the day)

Key Take-aways

  • Deep insight in the actual possibilities (and threats) of the newest technology that comes with privacy concerns
  • Newest research and state of privacy and data ethics
  • Reality check on the consequences of the Silicon Valley data capitalism model
  • Panel debate where academia meets privacy advocates meets big business

NB: Even though the event is a full day event you’re more than welcome to come and go as you please during the day, if you want to mix with other events.


The Facebook scandal with Cambridge Analytica in the center, fake news, Russian troll armies, and Social Credit System in China have also taught us some serious challenges have come along with the new technology.

Do you really know what traces you leave behind when using Facebook quizzes, “free” apps? Do you know what it can be used for?

If you’re scared now. Buckle up for the future! When we start providing massive amounts of eg. biometric data, weight, blood samples, DNA data, respiratory samples, image recognition from surveillance cameras etc., the negative consequences could multiply exponentially.


Let’s get pragmatic!

Come spend a half or a full day and get a reality check with the newest research, privacy advocates and dystopian prophets. But also let’s get pragmatic and discuss how we all can contribute to a digital future where safety meets business meets responsibility.
