In this talk, Dr Sebastian Kaempf analyses the transformative effects that the internet, social media apps, and cloud computing have had on societies and human beings. He then focuses on three broad social trends that are affecting cyberspace today and how they are impacting on privacy, human rights, and freedom of speech:
1) the growing role of the state in cyberspace and the securitization of cyberspace;
2) the growth of a global market for cyberarms;
3) the changing demographics of cyberspace.
These developments, he argues, do not bowed well for the future of the internet, privacy, and human rights and therefore require each of us to change our attitude towards the information technology we are using on a daily basis.
