TALKS:

Aral Balkan: THE CYBORG REVOLUTION
The year is 2017. Donald Trump is president of the United States. 8 men hold half of the world’s wealth. Between them, they preside over a digital panopticon that enslaves and farms the world’s population. It is time to understand that human rights are cyborg rights and deserve constitutional protection. It is time to rise up, reclaim our rights, and start paving the path forward toward a more egalitarian and sustainable future, starting in Europe by reclaiming individual sovereignty and nurturing a healthy, decentralised, digital commons.

Emma Holten: WORKER'S RIGHTS ARE BODILY RIGHTS  
Worker's rights can seem like a dated concept in a time when robots are taking over and we hardly even need people to drive cars. But the reality is that worker's rights are more important than ever before. New technologies mean new ways of surveilling the way a person works, moves around, and thinks. Are we surrendering our right to keep our body to ourselves, in the name of productivity and efficiency?

Bogi Eliasen: KILLING SUPER(WO)MAN

Bogi's talk will question some of the basic perceptions of privacy under the title: Killing Super(wo)man: 
- Informed consent and data ownership, control and accessibility
- Biological privacy – and the walking biobanks
- Data security vs usability – when sharing is caring
- Bridging the individual and collective needs in a privacy framework
