About The Event

Privacy is important for trust, the control over own life, the freedom of thought and speech, boundaries and the ability to be interested in something without the need to justify yourself.

BUT the advancement of data driven technology and the earning models that are based on profiling and sending you the right ads or messages, require you to “voluntarily” give away your privacy for services technology provides. The more personalised experience you want to get out of your smart tech, the more privacy you need to give away.

So the big question is whether using technology and keeping your privacy can be combined?

Our learning initiative Think Future Today is the result of many conversations we have when talking about preparing for the future. Every time we hear different questions, concerns, ethical dilemmas and challenges the advancement of technology and AI brings. We decided to create a space to explore them and develop the future literacy skills. We want to challenge preconceptions, uncover different perspectives and implications of using technology and AI in various areas of our life. We invite you to join the discussion and learning on subjects that are highly relevant for our future. In the end, we want to THINK TODAY what FUTURE we want to be part of tomorrow.
