This month Richard Dent, a PhD Candidate from the University of Cambridge, will be joining us to talk about digital trust.
“The explosion of the sharing economy takes advantage of trillions of pounds worth of idle assets. But what about the idle trust? Can digital platforms help re-introduce people to their local communities, build trust between strangers and together address social problems?
Building digital trust has many implications especially regarding equality. Many are being left behind due to lack of Internet access or they lack the minimum digital literacy. Additionally Governments maybe tempted to ‘out-source’ social services to pro-social networks during recession or periods of austerity . I will attempt to highlight the opportunities and risks of digital trust.”
Time: 4pm – 6pm
Location: Mezzanine café, Curzon Victoria, 58 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QW
