Heads in the Cloud: The Technology Revolution and World Politics

Tuesday 28 January 2014, 6.30 - 8.00pm, Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Yasmin Green; Chair: Professor Arne Westad

Everywhere we look, we see that connectivity is transforming the way individuals, organizations, and states interact. For all that has been reported about 'cyber attacks' and 'hacktivism', we are only just beginning to grasp how these changes have influenced our capacity for conflict and collaboration. Yasmin Green, Head of Strategy and Operations at Google Ideas, explores the role of technology to both harm and protect in our new digital age.
