Navigation the digital revolution

More detailed information

In this engaging keynote, Rik takes the audience on a journey through three decades of digital revolution and its profound impact on humanity. He illuminates the formidable challenges spawned by this disruption and underscores our responsibility in their creation. There's no external savior; the solution lies within ourselves.

Rik delves into the positive, negative, and downright ugly consequences of our technological advancement. From disruption and artificial intelligence to privacy and the storming of the Capitol, his presentation explores various themes with boldness and critical insight. Rik fearlessly examines our current digital reality, weaving in pop culture references like 'the Upside Down' from Stranger Things and literary works such as Lord of the Flies, alongside pivotal moments in technological history. Personal anecdotes, including encounters with figures like Alexander Nix, enrich the narrative.

While his tale initially seems to lead to a bleak conclusion, Rik surprises with a twist that instills hope for the next 30 years.
