Why Net: Can New Media Help Democratic Transformations?

Intellectual Forum

In the left corner - inefficient state institutions, oligarch controlled media outlets and the military invasion from Russia. In the right corner - Ukrainians lacking money but not enthusiasm, expertise and digital literacy to create digital civic initiatives pushing for reforms and providing public service in the spheres where the state fails to deliver. Who are you betting on?

This talk for the 2018 Festival of Ideas, co-hosted by the Intellectual Forum, Jesus College, and the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, will describe something Europe hasn’t witnessed before - an emerging digital civil society. It will also discuss how the case study of Ukraine shows that we have previously underestimated the potential of the Internet for democracy.

Cyber Security: Comparing Best Practice Across Europe

Chatham House

Over the last two years, major attacks on high profile corporations have inflicted damage to business confidence and compromised the data of millions of consumers. Malware attacks such as WannaCry and Petya have demonstrated the capability of both non-state and state-sponsored actors to cause significant disruption across a host of different sectors, exposing a variety of different vulnerabilities.  

At this event, the panellists will discuss how different countries throughout Europe converge and diverge in their cybersecurity practices. Which states and sectors are most vulnerable to cyber attacks and how can we counter digital threats in these critical areas? How can digital skills and security measures be prioritised within educational systems? And what are the main reasons behind the targeting of specific states and sectors by cyber attackers?

Transnet: Understanding traffic with open data and visualization

The Alan Turing Institute

Contemporary urban policy makers face a critical challenge over the next decade or so: transport infrastructure needs to be able to cope with growing (and increasingly mobile) populations, yet central and local governments are operating in an era of austerity where major new investment in infrastructure is unlikely. Data science and data-centric engineering offer a potential solution to this problem. Data about the way the infrastructure is used may offer ways of optimising the existing use of infrastructure and open the possibility of improving the performance of existing traffic networks without making major new investments.

Cyber 2018

Chatham House

The last year has witnessed major hacks on high profile corporations that inflicted massive damage to business confidence and compromised the data of millions of consumers. Attacks such as WannaCry and Not-Petya demonstrated the capability of state-sponsored actors to cause major disruption and highlighted a range of international cyber security vulnerabilities.

As businesses and citizens attempt to understand and protect themselves against these threats, the cyber landscape is experiencing a period of rapid change driven by growth in internet of things (IoT) technologies and the design and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI). Without consideration of the emerging security challenges these technological developments present, a range of potential new risks even more catastrophic than recent attacks could emerge.
