Technology is transforming society on many fronts. In recent years, we have seen the rise of social media and the sharing economy, a sustained move from atoms to bits, and the rapid development of cloud computing, big data, smart devices, and robotics. Along with these developments we see a continuous stream of new legal and regulatory issues. For every problem solved, two new problems seem to surface.
TILTing 2017 (Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT)), brings together researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and civil society at the intersection of law and regulation, technology, and society to share insights, exchange ideas and formulate, discuss and suggest answers to contemporary challenges related to technological innovation.
The conference will include plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and panel discussions with invited speakers, as well as presentations from respondents to the call for papers. The conference features five large tracks: Privacy, Health, Intellectual property, Data Science, and PLSC Europe.
Confirmed speakers: Solon Barocas, John M. Golden, Flis Henwood, Gary T. Marx, Sean McDonald, Irene Schlünder, Christopher Slobogin and Maciej Szpunar.
