Keynote: Christopher Wylie
The Whistleblower on Cambridge Analytica data-scandal
We are delighted to have Christopher Wylie as our keynote for the Media, Design & Creativity theme. He is one of the most influential people of 2018. Christopher worked with The Guardian and The New York Times as a whistleblower to expose how social media data was being exploited and turned against ordinary citizens.
Time nominated Christopher on their 100 Most Influential People 2018 list for his work revealing the risks posed by unfettered data misuse and the growing power of large technology companies. His testimonies at the United States Congress and British Parliament served as a wake up call for many and have quickly led to new legislative proposals in both countries. Christopher is a graduate of the London School of Economics and lives in London, UK.
