We live in the age of information – there is no other factor that can generate more riches today than controlling and processing in a massive way petabytes of data.

On the one hand, we receive incredible search, information and networking tools for free. This has made Google, Facebook and Amazon into true giants. However, the average consumer doesn’t realise that we receive so much for free because we’re not the customers, but the product of the technological titans.

Equally important is the debate on how much security a state should provide to its citizens, and at what cost. Hundreds of millions of cameras with facial recognition in China are dragging us into the times of Big Brother, whether we like it or not.

We’ll get together and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

• What’s more important – privacy or security?
• Who and in what way should own or data?
• Google, Facebook, Amazon – too powerful?
• Is access to data processing a human right?
• The upcoming world – the end of privacy?

We will meet at 7 PM, on the second floor of the cafe (large table). Ask for Jan at the entrance.

Schedule:

• 7:00 – 7:30: Welcome and initial chat
• 7:20 – 9:50: Discussion in groups
• 9:50 – 10:00: Selfie time, close
