Now in its fifth year, the newly renamed Niejelow Rodin Global Digital Futures Policy Forum (in light of support from the Niejelow/Rodin family), brings together leading scholars from across Columbia University, CEOs, senior policy makers, entrepreneurs, legal and policy experts, amongst others to discuss the broad challenges and opportunities created by the wide-ranging digital transformations occurring in the world today.
The theme of this year’s Forum is Navigating Digital Transformations: Survive or Thrive? Across a full day of panel discussions, fireside chats and keynote addresses, scholars and experts will examine the growing impact of digital technology and data in critical areas such as speech, elections, regulation, artificial intelligence, cyber business risk management, and cybersecurity. Each area will focus on governance challenges and possible policy responses and solutions—whether private or public sector in nature.
Across multiple keynotes and six panels, our esteemed list of over twenty speakers will address:
• How can open and pluralistic societies thrive in the digital future—be it with respect to elections and speech, regulating/governing the digital economy; and the AI/Data/ Algorithmic world?
• How can we establish a roadmap towards “cyber peace” or cyber governance in the global context and financial stability in a world of increased cyber risk?
This workshop is organized under Columbia SIPA’s Tech and Policy Initiative, a program to develop new thinking and expertise at the intersection of cybersecurity, internet governance, and the digital economy. The Forum builds upon the previous four years of annual gathering, which represent a long-term intellectual initiative to reimagine our digital future, focusing on the potential benefits and costs arising from global digital technology changes and looking ahead to emerging challenges and possible policy responses.
