About this event

BDF Question Time returns this year with a focus on the role technology in the democratic ecosystem.

Join us for this fascinating public debate.

Technology, in the form of digital messaging, social media and digital advertising, plays a huge role in modern society.  But recent investigations and studies have suggested that technology can be manipulated to gerrymander opinion or cause actual harm. 

What is the role of the digital industry to consider its impact on our social fabric?  Does the industry have a responsibility to society or is it society's responsibility to use the available technology in a safe and sustainable way.

Join the debate.  There will be four lead questions to explore and we will invite comment from the floor during the debate.  If you have a question you would like to put to the panel please get in touch with us at hello@bathdigitalfestival.co.uk.
