Life in the Infosphere: Hypernudges, Blackboxes… and you

We are so immersed in an information universe – an ‘Infosphere’ – that we are largely unaware that we inhabit it. In the Infosphere, reality can, and will, be commoditised, monetised and reborn as behaviour, but how exactly are we being impacted? Leading academics unite with tech pros to deliver an astounding analysis. 

Panel members:

  • Professor Karen Yeung – Director – TELOS 
  • Professor Frank Pasquale – Professor – University of Maryland
  • Dr Monika Zalnieriute – Post-Doctoral Fellow at University of Melbourne, and co-founder of SapfoFest – University of Melbourne
  • David Watts - Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection – Commissioner
  • James Horton – Founder and CEO – Datanomics
