Session Overview

What are the consequences of China’s rapid growth in technology? Western news media are full of panic stories about Huawei, the social credit system, surveillance, artificial intelligence and big data that China is supposed to use to build an Orwellian control society. This lecture examines whether this fear is justified, it explains the Chinese technology agenda and shows what the impact will be on Europe.
