Can We Trust in Code? It is a pressing question in the current technology debate. For our Sogeti Summit in 2018 we gathered some of the most visionary speakers to share their insights around this topic. This time we want to share the idea and vision from Andrew Keen – ‘How to Fix the Future’. About Andrew Keen Andrew Keen was among the earliest to write about the dangers of the Internet to our culture and society. Keen’s new book, How to Fix the Future, based on research, analysis, and Keen’s own reporting in America and around the world, showcases global solutions for our digital predicament. Keen identifies five broad strategies to tackle the digital future: competitive innovation, government regulation, consumer choice, social responsibility by business leaders, and education. How to Fix the Future has been called “the most significant work so far in an emerging body of literature…in which technology’s smartest thinkers are raising alarm bells about the state of the Internet and laying groundwork for how to fix it”

About the ‘In Code We Trust’ events

‘In Code We Trust’ is the second report in our new research theme “Digital Happiness”. Two recent deep dives with a group of IT Executives and visionary speakers gave us more insights in how Trust and Code are going to evolve. We’ll share the videos recorded at these meetings that we’ve organized in the coming months. Both in the US (Chicago) and Europe (Amsterdam) business executives, media experts and academia shared their views on the massive transformative impact of digital technologies. We are grateful for their input and inspiration which guided us in our report ‘In Code We Trust’ which you can download here.
