Reshaping the Internet through Collective and Networked Intelligence
The Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative aims to foster a vibrant open Human-centric Internet movement that links research, policy and society for the creation of a better Internet – an Internet that respects fundamental values of privacy, participation and diversity.
The NGI Forum is the flagship annual event that gathers together prominent researchers, innovators and policy makers at work on several fronts to restructure the Internet to be fit for the future we want, while we continue using it to help run our societies and economies. This year it will take place on the 25 September in Helsinki (Finland) in co-location with the My Data 2019 Conference.
The event will include a mix of policy and specialist talks, open discussions and interactive working groups. The emphasis is on stimulating discussion and the free exchange of ideas between policy makers, researchers, SMEs and Startups, industry players, and civil society. Some of the main topics covered at NGI Forum 2019 include:
- Data governance and portability
- Privacy and trust enhancing technologies
- Discovery technologies and online identification
- Collective intelligence – from citizens science to open innovation
- Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies
