The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence, is inviting submissions from around the world to its first virtual conference on trustworthy digital identity, September 13, 2021.
Staged to bring together prominent academics and key players in the field of digital identity from government and industry sectors, this online event is to focus on assessment and opportunities for development of trustworthy digital identity systems.
Themes and key questions cover the influences, particularly from national governments, that are driving digital identity today and the qualities of the underlying systems that can attest to whether they are deserving of trust. They also reflect the social impact, cultural, societal and behavioural conventions that have a role to play in anticipating vulnerabilities for the people digital ID systems are being set up to serve.
