2017 Call for Presentations Open

This year we’re looking for presentations around the theme ‘The Mechanics of Freedom’. Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things are becoming even more integrated in the lives of regular citizens. Along with these changes comes concern over the trade-offs between convenience and privacy. We would like to see talks that bring together pieces of this larger puzzle.

For example: Privacy in the age of relentless online tracking, How bots can help you onboard new community members, Training driverless vehicles, How the Internet of Things took down DNS
