The University of Luxembourg, in cooperation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), will host a conference on Tuesday, 25 October, exploring the topic of digital identity and the Internet.
The keynote speech will be delivered by David Shrier, Managing Director of MIT Connection Science, a cross-disciplinary initiative to help business executives, investors, entrepreneurs and policymakers unlock the multitude of new opportunities offered by the new hyperconnected world we live in.
Mr Shrier will speak on the importance of creating an “Internet of Trusted Identity”, where people can be ensured that their personal information-identification, health records and prescriptions, finances, and other data are safe, secure, and accessible to only those who are authorised with a need to know. He will explore how trust can be earned and why it is needed to seize the huge societal benefits offered by digital technology.
The conference will be held in English. The event starts at 10.00 on 25 October at the Black Box, Maison des Sciences Humaines, Belval Campus, 2 Avenue de l’Université. The conference is free.
