Special guest

Arwen Smit specialises in technology ethics and its intended and unintended consequences on society. Smit is the author of Identity Reboot, a book examining how the break-down of personal data privacy is being exploited from profit and power perspectives, arguing that human behaviour is being devalued to an optimisation game, and that we are providing the data that will be optimised for. Smit has previously worked within strategy roles for companies such as the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative, venture capitalist firms, various startups, Google and Facebook.
