Digitalisation & Data Security
We are happy to invite you to our kick-off workshop for the new programme on digitalisation and data security.
27 September & 29 September, 2016
at 6:00 pm
Polis180’s new program on digitalisation and data security will tackle issues at the intersection of technology and foreign affairs. We want to cover aspects that we consider important for our generation, including artificial intelligence in autonomous warfare, social media in digital diplomacy, cyber warfare and international law and inevitably the European Digital Single Market. We want our program to function as an accelerator for technological understanding and interdisciplinary exchange, building a bridge between policymakers, researchers and the tech community. It is our goal to provide our members and partners with a technical understanding of digitalisation and data security, so they feel enabled to make practical policy recommendations. If this is what you’re looking for, join us to help build the digital future of foreign affairs.
The workshop consists of two parts:
27.09 – Topics
29.09 – Organisational matters
Workshop one will define the content of the programme. We will find topics of interest and establish project groups, working on a specific topic.
The second workshop on Thursday will set up milestones, events and a road map for the first 6 months of the programme. We will also discuss content for the blog and other new formats for the programme.
If you’re interested, please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org until September 23rd. Please indicate whether you want to register for both parts of the workshop.
Do you have any other topics you’re passionate about, any other technical issues you think could be handled better in international politics? Then join us and help make a difference!
