New technologies become interwoven with our everyday lives and our relationship with gadgets is constantly evolving. Do the current terms and concepts of consumer protection remain valid in the digital age? What are the new vulnerabilities and do we need to re-learn consumer protection?
Keynote: Dr Urs Gasser, Harvard University
Microsoft’s Digital Values series seeks to promote a collective discussion around salient consequences of our evolving relationship with computers. Digital Values focuses on the current challenges that innovative technology poses to consumers and citizens concerning existing governance structure. Topics such as fundamental rights, privacy, security, protection and trust should not be treated in isolation. We hope that practical and constructive proposals will emerge from the discussions.
