Guest Keynote: Making Evil — The Curious Science Behind Cybercrime, Moral Blindness, and False Memories.

In this talk Dr Julia Shaw explores the darker side of tech. She discusses the ways in which criminology and psychology help us understand cybercrime, how business structures hide our humanity, and how misinformation can turn into false memories. She forces us to think about how we curates peoples’ reality, and the tremendous responsibility that comes with this privilege. In this lively and thought-provoking talk, Dr Shaw encourages us to think deeper about our morality, and how we can use tech and social media to help overcome some of humanity’s greatest threats.
