Ars Electronica Think-In

ADAPT Citizens' Think-In for Ars Electronica 2021

Digital technology has rapidly changed how we access information, how we work and how we connect with each other. This has also given rise to an massive increase in the amount of personal data information being gathered across the apps, websites and online services we use every day. But do we really understand where and how this data is shared? What is the level of trust between us and big tech organisations who control our data?

Join our workshop as part of Ars Electronica 2021 to discuss ‘Who Should We Trust With Our Data?’
Thursday 9 Sept 2021, 12-13:30 BST.
