    Malcolm Moore, Technology News Editor, Financial Times

  • 10:35am
    Panel Discussion Facial recognition: the fight against dystopia

    From police forces to shopping malls the use of biometric surveillance is spreading largely unchecked and unregulated around the world, prompting growing controversy and concerns about privacy, data protection and human rights.  Amidst calls for a moratorium on facial recognition technology regulators are assessing the risks and working out how to protect the individual’s rights to privacy and prevent images and data from being misused.  

    • Is facial recognition a crime-fighting tool or dystopian means of surveillance? What are the benefits of the technology and the ethics and potential negative consequences of its deployment?   
    • Is it possible to strike a balance between data protection and public security?  
    • How can appropriate policies and controls to regulate the use of facial recognition be developed and implemented?


    Professor Paul Wiles, Biometrics Commissioner

    Shaun Moore, CEO, Trueface

    Silkie Carlo, Director, Big Brother Watch

    Dialogues: The Future of Adtech

    Adtech is under the spotlight with widespread reports of  illegal harvesting and lack of transparency in the trading of personal data.  Real-time-bidding is built on shaky foundations and uses practices that undermine security and fail to obtain explicit consent. 

    • As data protection regulators take a tougher stance is it too late to put the adtech house in order?
    • Can regulators keep pace with the speed of change in the industry? Who ultimately wields the power? 
    • Does the future of adtech belong to the data monopolies?

    Panel Discussion: Data Protection in Healthcare

    Tech companies are developing increasingly innovative ways of collecting and exploiting vast amounts of highly sensitive and valuable health information from sources as diverse as  genetic testing, medical devices and fitness trackers. As a result, there is growing complexity and risk surrounding data ownership and privacy, and the need to protect systems, data and individuals is becoming ever more pressing. This discussion will home in on ways to ensure the responsible, secure and ethical use of sensitive medical data throughout the health ecosystem.  

    • What is being done to prevent personal data being leaked or compromised?  
    • How are the individual’s rights and interests being protected by the organisations who control their data?  
    • How can we be sure that the data is being used to benefit health outcomes?
