Privacy and Innovation: There is more than one future.
Privacy is not an obstacle to innovation. Doubtful? Thing is, there is more than one future. And it's up to us to make sure that we steering towards a positive one. While it's not going to be a quick fix, it's possible -- and in this talk we will stretch our imagination together, analysing what is, identifying what needs to change, and envisioning what we want instead. Because if privacy is the renewable energy of our digital societies, we have to learn how to hone and strengthen it.

"Learning is about motivation. It is dependent on reward signals. The more we enjoy learning, the more effective it becomes." Michael Kohl teaches and researches at the Institute for Neurosciences at Oxford University. He is interested in how we learn, more precisely: how the brain codes and processes information. In his keynote he will tell us what role motivation, fun and reward play in this process.

"Lernen ist eng mit Motivation und Belohnung verbunden. Je mehr Freude wir am Lernen haben, desto effektiver wird es." Michael Kohl lehrt und forscht am Institut für Neurowissenschaften der Universität Oxford. Ihn interessiert, wie wir lernen, genauer: wie das Gehirn Informationen codiert und prozessiert. Welche Rolle dabei Motivation, Spass und Belohnung spielen, wird er uns in seiner Keynote verraten.

You will explore the principles of digital minimalism and how we can impact the world through mindful technology to create a better everyday life for humanity.
