“Is this profile I am looking at real or fake?” “How much credit can I put into this review?” "Will the things that I do today come back to haunt me in the future?"
Building trust is necessary and tireless work. Now more than ever, the peer economy, social media, and recommendation engines are tasked with defining what's acceptable and what data is shared. Online and real world identities are colliding. As the diversity of services and users proliferate, current approaches to trust systems are becoming more consequential.
This panel explores the tension between trust, confidentiality and social identity. The audience will walk away with perspectives from digital activism and cultural expression when translating trust into technical systems. We'll share findings on global opinions towards tech and privacy and its critical role to business. Join us for a critique of current strategies and their longer-term impact on the communities, societies, and networks we seek to protect and grow.
