Digital Values series: Human Trust

Just how strong is trust in a modern society? The more we depend on technologies to carry out or mediate our everyday activities, the more we need to make sure that we trust them to do so. How do you inspire user trust without any face-to-face contact? Do we need trustmarks or rather trust user experience?

Keynote: Richard Harper from Microsoft Research Cambridge


Microsoft’s Digital Values series seeks to promote a collective discussion around salient consequences of our evolving relationship with computers. Digital Values focuses on the current challenges that innovative technology poses to consumers and citizens concerning existing governance structure. Topics such as fundamental rights, privacy, security, protection and trust should not be treated in isolation. We hope that practical and constructive proposals will emerge from the discussions.
