About Us

Eric Schmidt (Executive Chairman, Google) will give a series of three public lectures and a concluding symposium on Connectivity and the Diffusion of Power.Today, our online identities affect but rarely overshadow our physical selves. But In the future, this could change: our identities in everyday life will come to be defined more and more by our virtual activities and associations.With that comes some danger: the potential for someone else to access, share or manipulate parts of our online identities will increase, particularly due to our reliance on cloud-based data storage. The shift from having one's identity shaped off-line and projected online to an identity that is fashioned online and experienced off-line will have implications for citizens, states, and companies as they navigate the new digital world.

Eric Schmidt - The Future of Conflict, Combat, and Intervention

Humanitas Visiting Professor in Media 2013: Eric Schmidt The Humanitas Chair in Media has been made possible by the generous support of the Blavatnik Family Foundation Eric Schmidt (Executive Chairman, Google) will give a series of three public lectures and a concluding symposium on Connectivity and the Diffusion of Power. Abstract Our history is littered with examples of mass murder and genocide and the worst atrocities man can do unto fellow man. In the future, massacres on a genocidal scale will be harder to conduct. But discrimination will likely worsen and become more personal. Increased connectivity within societies will provide practitioners of discrimination, whether official or led by citizens, with entirely new ways to marginalize minorities and other disliked groups, whose own use of technology will make them easier to target. In this case, connection will be working against peace. Governments that are used to repressing minorities in the physical world have a whole new s...

Eric Schmidt - The Next 5 Billion: Life in Our New Connected Age

Humanitas Visiting Professor in Media 2013: Eric Schmidt The Humanitas Chair in Media has been made possible by the generous support of the Blavatnik Family Foundation Eric Schmidt (Executive Chairman, Google) will give a series of three public lectures and a concluding symposium on Connectivity and the Diffusion of Power. Abstract At every level of society, connectivity will continue to become more affordable and practical in substantial ways. People will have access to ubiquitous wireless Internet networks that are many times cheaper than they are now. We’ll be more efficient, more productive and more creative. In a world where everyone is connected, how will people be affected by a world that is both physical and virtual at every level? For citizens, coming online means coming into possession of multiple identities in the physical and virtual worlds. In many ways, their virtual identities will come to supersede all others, as the trails they leave remain engraved online in perpe...
