IC Research Day - Digital Trust


Event details

Date and time 06.06.2019  
Place and room
Category Conferences - Seminars

Trust is indispensable to the prosperity and well-being of societies. For millennia, we developed trust-building mechanisms to facilitate interactions. But as they become increasingly digital, many traditional mechanisms no longer function well, hence trust breaks down. As a result, low levels of trust discourage us from engaging in new forms of interactions and constrain business opportunities. We must therefore re-invent trust mechanisms that will contribute to prosperous and peaceful societies in the digital age.
At this year's IC Research Day, world-leading experts will present and discuss their work toward achieving these goals. EPFL researchers will showcase ongoing research projects and engage with the audience.
