David Ryan Polgar

More about David

Why did we invite him? As a tech ethicist, David is a perfect person for deep tech discussions, as he has an enviable outlook on all hotly-debated issues around around Facebook, privacy, ethical design, digital wellbeing, and what it means to be human in the digital age. He is a 3-time TEDx speaker who has been featured in USA Today, New York Post, The Guardian, CNN.com and BBC.com. He founded All Tech is Human, an initiative to better align tech with the human interests of users and society, and is the co-host of Funny as Tech -a live show and podcast that tackles the thorniest issues in tech.

What will he talk about? David was really interested in topics that have been shaking (not only) Slovakia recently: fake news, conspiracies, freedom of speech, overload of conflicting information on web and subsequent digital burnout. He is looking forward to exploring these phenomena on stage and find an optimistic answer for our digital future.
