TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders"

What limits and borders are we faced with as individuals, as a society? Who or what defines these boundaries? What are the results of these demarcations – demarcations as barriers that may even result in scientific and artistic limitations to us as individuals and society as a whole? Are they arbitrarily defined borders or are they erected due to their necessity? Are they obstacles or are they beneficial? And what happens if we overcome these borders?

 

Review 2012 TEDxBerlin Salon 2012 "The World In My Pocket"

TEDxBerlin Salon 2012 "The World in My Pocket"

What effects do mobile technologies have on our society? How will our daily lives unfold ten years from now and what will the future of the working world look like?

Our society is entering a new technological era that is accompanied by challenges that communications-technologies are meeting with intelligent solutions. Web 3.0 is fast approaching and with it are consumer trust issues. What happens to and who has access to personal data? Scepticism always arises with something that exists only virtually. Something as indistinct and abstract, for example, as cloud computing, raises concerns and questions amongst the individual and enterprise customers. 

TEDxBerlin Salon “The World in My Pocket: Data, Privacy and Trust - The Digital Challenge“ identified how our current trust barriers are realigning in light of a new technological era that is calling for a deeper level of trust. With each individual having instant access from any device from almost anywhere, a group of international experts and pioneers evoked deep discussion in an intimate setting. The advancement of mobile technologies, the accompanying dilemmas and how these intertwine with society, individual lives and the working world were explored.
