Event: THE DIGITAL SELF IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD

1610 H Street, NW

July 23 , 2014

The Center for Democracy & Technology is hosting a series of interactive discussions relating to various aspects of digital life, with a particular focus on emerging technologies and the transformation of traditional industries into technology and data companies.

Our first event will frame the discussion for industry, policy, government, academic, and advocacy participants, touching on the larger societal themes of living in an “always on” world, the impact on the individual, and the opportunities and risk for commercial interests in the digital economy.  Thought leaders will discuss not only the ubiquity of data, but also the individual’s relationship with their devices and the policy, legal, and societal environment around emerging technologies and individual data.

The program will go until 5:00 p.m., followed by a networking reception at the Decatur House.

About Always On: 

The Center for Democracy & Technology is hosting a series of interactive discussions relating to various aspects of digital life, with a particular focus on emerging technologies and the transformation of traditional industries into technology and data companies.

Each event, limited to 125 participants, will feature brief remarks by a technology, business, or policy thought leader; followed by facilitated roundtable discussions involving all participants; and will close with panel-led outcomes and proposals. 

The events will not only generate reports to capture the outcomes of these initial discussions, but will also serve as the catalyst for a deeper, multidisciplinary engagement to delve into the topics described below. These will operate under CDT’s established working group structure, bringing together industry, advocates, government, academia, and the technology community, with the goal of developing best practices and standards for policy leaders in government and the private sector.
