Special Lecture: Evgeny Morozov

Plenary / Lecture
english language

Last in Alpbach eleven years ago as a scholarship holder, Morozov returns as one of the world’s most knowledgeable critics of silicon-valley-dominated data capitalism. What is the agenda of the data industry and how can Europe regain its technological sovereignty? Being a regular columnist for the Guardian and award-winning book author, Morozov will share his insights on a world where data is the new key resource.
