- TYPE: Keynote DATE: Tuesday, November 28, 2017 TIME: 16:40-17:00 LOCATION: Le Hub
As the famous quote from Marshall McLuhan states “The medium is the message” and, as our identities move from the physical to the digital, the digitalization of identities changes us as human beings in profound and unexpected ways. As we move online there becomes the question of who controls your identity? Facebook? The government or company who creates the identity? The companies you provide your identity to? Or You? The answer to this question has impacts right to the foundation of who we are as people. Our values, opinions and decision making process will be shaped into something new and different based on this new digital existence. This shift will make us healthier and even happier, yet at a cost of some compromises that would make us a bit more similar to each other. Join this session for a discussion on the impact of digital identity, the battle for control and the implications of the outcome for us and society.
