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.
