*The emergence of the cloud services, big data and the internet of
things could be one of the greatest boons to humankind in history,
enabling a paradigm-shift in quality of life.  The bad news is that
there could be a downside. The development has profound implications for
us in terms of surveillance, privacy and consumer rights. *

  * Will we humans remain in control of the process, or will the process
    begin to control us?
  * Where do human rights such as privacy stand?
  * Can or should a system of ethics be imposed on computer software and
    the internet of things itself?
  * Are existing legal frameworks and approaches able to adapt to the
    coming machine age?

In the midst of the complex and often exciting technical changes that
are being developed to help the human condition, we should ensure that
humanity itself is not left out of the equation.  Netopia invites to an
afternoon of discussion, report presentation and mingle.
