A Cambridge Festival and Wolfson Explores GROWTH event: a panel discussion chaired by Professor John Naughton of Wolfson College, Cambridge and the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy, with Gina Neff, David Runciman and Jennifer Cobbe, considering the regulation of global technology companies.

The networked world is now dominated by a small number of global technology companies, and Western democracies have finally woken up to the dangers posed by such a powerful and largely unregulated industry. To date, however, the 70+ attempts currently under way to rein in tech power have yielded few results. This is in sharp contrast to the situation in China where the country’s huge tech industry seems to have been brought under government control. Which prompts the question: can tech giants only be successfully regulated by authoritarian regimes?
