DigitalAgenda Power & Responsibility Summit
A one-day summit on regulation, trust and the unintended consequences of the digital age.
What is the summit about?
Power & Responsibility debates regulation, trust and the unintended consequences of the digital age. And it explores the technology response to the challenges before us.
The summit looks at the downsides of the digital changes taking place across society and the economy. It covers critical themes including trust, privacy, regulation, mental health and developer ethics.
We will look at the challenges that these issues present, and look at the policy and technology solutions now emerging including the recent “Unlocking Digital Competition” report set up to make recommendations for changes to the UK’s competition framework that are needed to face the economic challenges posed by digital markets, in the UK and internationally. The report contains recommendations on updating the rules governing merger and antitrust enforcement, as well as proposing a bold set of pro-competition measures to open up digital markets.
