[Debate] Sharing health data - what are the side effects?
Although we share  (consciously or unconsciously) large amounts of data every day, it seems we are less willing to share our health data as they seem particularly sensitive and confidential. However, sharing health data could help improve research, anticipate epidemics or detect pharmaceutical scandals. Currently these data are well protected, but the legislative and practical obstacles could be overcome. Who would be able to take charge of the sharing of health care data, ensure peoples anonymity and avoid that data is used to the detriment of those offering it? What are the ethical limits of these practices?

[Debate] What is the true cost of your data ?
Every day we produce large amounts of data through our activities, our virtual movements and the content we enjoy on the internet. While these data points may be useless as individual entitites, when compared and cross-referenced with eachother, the ensemble of this information can create very powerful digital services. How is this data used by large digital companies? What are their business models? Should users be the sole owner of their data and be able to decide whether to use or sell it? Or should this data be made available to all?

[Debate] How to govern alongside digital giants?
Almost one third of humanity today has a Facebook account and 91% of all internet searches are done via Google! Within a decade, a hand full of few web giants have become extremely powerful, offering services that make our lives easier, but which in exchange also make us dependant. How do users and society benefit from these services and what role should goverments play here? Does the dominance of companies like Facebook, Google or Apple pose problems for regulations, or on the contrary, is this an essential condition for improving our societies?
