SHAPE THE FUTURE
We have entered a new era, where the threads of technology and society are woven closer together than we could have ever predicted. We have the opportunity to solve the world's biggest problems through technology - we just have to take the right steps to get there.
Now is the time for some of the biggest social, political, and philosophical decisions to be made. At The Assembly, we bring together the greatest architects of technology, global captains of industry, and key policy-makers to shape the future together.
Join us for the third edition of The Assembly, at TNW Conference on May 9th and 10th, 2019.
The Assembly Partner:
Theme 2019: The Privacy Paradox
Driving impactful innovation whilst protecting society
Our overarching theme for this year’s The Assembly is the privacy paradox.
The way we think about innovation and privacy is undergoing a tectonic shift. Society is becoming increasingly aware that we can’t leave technology giants unchecked; how can regulations like GDPR and knowledge sharing about privacy practices help us strike a balance between business innovation and the protection of society? How do we move fast and innovate while protecting our users? Can each country/society and organization set their own rules?
At The Assembly, we invite top government officials and business & technology leaders to share and discuss best practices and inspiring use cases from around the globe.
The big four: take a look at the sub themes we'll be exploring at this year's edition
The Data Dilemma
How far should we go in protecting society from the erosion of privacy, without compromising innovation and competitiveness? Can regulations like GDPR play a positive role in safeguarding privacy without stifling innovation?
The Next Billion
The next billion people online will come from emerging markets. What opportunities for innovation and collaboration does this bring? And what learnings can be implemented from the past?
Decentralized tech, like the blockchain, provide new ways of thinking and a new type of digital infrastructure. But it’s also become a heated topic of debate. How will it impact society, and can we trust it with our data?
Collaborating on Cyber Terrorism
How do we turn cybersecurity into a shared priority? What is our responsibility to protect, how far can we go to protect individuals and businesses from the implications of large-scale hacks and data breaches like WannaCry?
