Sessions

Discover new things and be creative

This is a festival. So head out of the meeting rooms to the city, rooftops, museums and barbecue spots. It’s easier to inspire each other and network if you’re not only looking at the back of the head of the person in front of you.

Data on where we are, what we are doing and who we are communicating with is routinely collected from countless devices. This is not targeted monitoring – rather, an inherent feature of digital technology. This information can be evaluated with ever more complex procedures, and then used to support vendors and manufacturers when it comes to product development and innovation.

The SATW TecToday Big Data session is being held in collaboration with our educational and science partner, the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences SATW. Experts from the fields of data protection, ethics and business will be talking about the challenges and opportunities of big data, as well as how things might develop in future. The panel discussion will be moderated by Sandro Brotz. Entry to this event is free of charge.

New information technologies emerge at rapid pace and innovations in the area of ICT have significant impacts on our social, political and economic lives. The ongoing and expected changes offer great opportunities to societies and economies, but they also bear risks. To counter risks in the constantly evolving ICT landscape, a thorough understanding of the theoretical foundations of information security as well as practical security threats and countermeasures are needed and scientific findings are to be disseminated to the target groups.

This session aims to provide insights and a comprehensive overview to the newest trends, useful use cases and research in the field of Security Technologies and is jointly organized by ETH Zurich and the Digital Festival. Entry to this event is free of charge.

The media industry is affected by digital transformation like no other and has already seen sweeping changes with far-reaching consequences. However, as evidenced by buzzwords such as “fake news” and “social bots”, the challenges facing journalists and media companies show no signs of abating. As technology advances and the potential for manipulating the media via digital means becomes ever greater, fundamental questions arise concerning the role of the media in democratic discourse.

In order to address these issues, the Digital Society Initiative and the Research Institute for the Public Sphere and Society of the University of Zurich (UZH) have joined forces with the Digital Festival to stage a public debate on the subject of digital transformation. The event will begin with a presentation given by researchers from the UZH, highlighting some of the latest examples of how digital tools and social bots can be used to manipulate the media. Following this, moderator Marc Jäggi (Radio 1) will host a debate between Pascale Bruderer (Member of the Council of States), Ladina Heimgartner (Director of Radiotelevisiun Svizra Rumantscha RTR), Professor Abraham Bernstein (Department of Informatics, UZH) and Linards Udris (Research Institute for the Public Sphere and Society, UZH) on what these new challenges mean for the media landscape. The event is free to attend.
