Imagineers: Cybersecurity expert Jaya Baloo on hackers, AI and creating better humans

What do you call people who are stretching the limits of their imaginations to engineer a new future? At The Next Web, we went with imagineers.

We want to offer our favourite entrepreneurs and pioneers a platform to share the visions and insights that will shape our future, which is why, each week, we’ll present you with an exclusive episode of Imagineers.

Produced in partnership with the City of Amsterdam, each episode captures one person’s thought-provoking talk against the backdrop of TNW’s beloved home city, where rich history and culture go hand-in-hand with innovation and progression – just the right place for TNW Conference.

In this fifth episode, we sit down with Jaya Baloo, Chief Information Security Manager of KPN, the biggest telecommunication company in the Netherlands. Hear her fascinating thoughts on the future of privacy, cyber-security and artificial intelligence. Her talk is not only limited to improving machines, though, as creating better human beings is also on Baloo’s mind. When will we upgrade ourselves with increased storage capacity and processing power? And how do we harness the good without enabling the evil?

Brilliant food for thought.
