Webinar: Trust, transparency & digitalization

Monday, September 28, 2020 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

Denmark is among the most digital countries in the EU according to the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) by the European Commission, and it was named the most digital country in the world in the International Digital Economy and Society Index 2018. But at a time when the threat for misuse of data is real and new concerns about data ethics are emerging, are Danes being too naïve? Or could their high standards on digital responsibility and transparency lead the way to a more harmonized digital future?

Join our discussion about digitalization in the Scandinavian context with Søren Juul Jørgensen, former CEO at the Innovation Center Denmark in Silicon Valley, research fellow at the Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Stanford University and Founder of Forest Avenue and Rasmus Hauch, Chief Technology Officer at 2021.AI. This session will be moderated by Kathleen Thelen, Ford Professor of Political Science at MIT and Faculty Director for the MIT-Denmark Program.

This webinar is part of the MIT-Denmark data-driven future series. In this series, we will focus on digitalization in a Scandinavian context and the role trust has played and continues to play in digitalizing Denmark. We will discuss digitalization of everyday activities and public services, how tech artificial intelligence can used to make the world a little greener, as well as some of the challenges we face in an increasingly high-tech society.
