What's the talk about?

Jamie will talk about his new book 'The People Vs Tech', which argues there is a looming war between democracy and digital technology. He will explain what Cambridge Analytica did during the Trump election - and whether it made a difference - and suggest that democracies are being slowly undermined by the internet. Jamie will also set out what needs to be done to avoid the drift into techno-authoritarianism.

Copies of Jamie's latest book will be available for purchase at the event and he will be happy to sign copies upon request.
