Ethics & The Future of The Internet

  • Designersblock, Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf Barge House Street London, England, SE1 9QS United Kingdom (map)

Talks & group discussion

The internet is 25 years old this year. Rapid technological progress has forced us to consider ethical questions that we didn’t see coming. What does the future of the internet look like? And what are the questions we should all be asking about data, privacy and ethics? Georgina Bourke, Roope Mokka, Anastasia Dedyukhina, and Hal Hodson share their thoughts.

About Anastasia Dedyukhina

Having worked for 12+ years in senior digital marketing positions for global media and internet brands, and easily spending 16 hours a day connected and even sleeping with her phone, Anastasia eventually realised she needed to unplug to remain healthy and productive.

Giving up her smartphone was the first step to creating Consciously Digital - a London-based training and coaching company that helps individual and corporate clients be more productive online, so that they can have more time for things that matter.

About Hal Hodson

Hal Hodson is an editor and reporter with New Scientist. He works on stories about the technologies that shape our lives, the systems that control them, and the people who find themselves in the yoke.

Hal has explored warehouse husks filled with insects for human consumption in Ohio, watched dead rivers come back to life in Mexico, rescued a hexacopter from the side of a volcano in Bolivia, debated basic income in a sauna with 12 naked Finns, seen the world’s greatest robots fail to climb a set of stairs; all in pursuit of a story.

Hal has a degree in astrophysics from Trinity College Dublin. He is based in London.
