Panel debate, followed by ‘FREE’ networking drinks reception.

People are inherently social animals. The bonds we share and the ties we make have not only sustained us since time began, but define us as a species. We now live in a Quantified Society – a world full of data, where every action is recorded and measured, which gives us the ability to extend and enhance our capabilities, skills and transform lives in ways that we could never have imagined. 

The optimum value in our data is realised only when it is shared for the greater good, to the extent that our notions of privacy, defined by individualism, will ultimately prove to be unsustainable. The panel will discuss how these changes will challenge society, government, organisations, brands – and ultimately the defining quality of what makes us human, our morality.
