The use of personal data is of enormous global concern. The Digital Person symposium is an annual event organised by the HATLAB and Wolfson College Cambridge that discusses personal data from three perspectives: (1) digital personhood, law, freedom and democracy (2) value, economics and markets and (3) data analytics, data science and technology. Symposium participants are drawn from industry captains, policy makers, government representatives, combined with thought leaders from the sciences, humanities and social sciences with discussions relating to law, computer science, history, sociology, entrepreneurship, business, economics and the global society. The symposium is chaired by 3 eminent professors in the field, Professors John Naughton, Jon Crowcroft and Irene Ng. This unique cross-disciplinary symposium is organised jointly by Wolfson College Cambridge and HATLAB . https://www.wolfson.cam.ac.uk/

Aside from creating a unique environment for a robust discussion that is relevant and important, the symposium will also produce an annual white paper on the state of the digital person in a connected and digital society. The paper would then be presented to the Digital Person Symposium Committee, that acts as an editorial board. Once it is accepted, it will be published in the HATLAB series for the Digital Person (HDP). The HDP will be disseminated to national governments, funding agencies, industry and NGOs. Beyond that, parts of the paper will be published on Medium as small impact-driven articles. Last year’s white paper is available at >>>. The paper highlighted the issues, opportunities, and tensions of the digital person in 2018 and summarised the challenges that can be put into the larger context of the Internet and its implications for society, technology, and the economy.
