Panel Organized by: Mike Pereira, David Johnston Research + Technology Park

The world is seeing an unprecedented blurring of national and international boundaries, accelerated by global technologies that are deeply imbedded in infrastructure vital to nations and their citizens. This is playing out in real-time, with complex ramifications we scarcely understand – human behaviour is increasingly monitored, tracked, analyzed, and all too often, manipulated.

How do we protect ourselves from the threat of mis/disinformation? What do we do when the data of citizens is gathered and stored outside our borders? What happens when global technology intersects national security?

This panel takes an interactive dive into what Canadian’s and our government need to consider about the integration of technology into the fabric of our democracy.
