Deplatforming and the emergence of Democracy 2.0

The world is experiencing unprecedented generational challenges from COVID-19 that could erase all the 4th Industrial Revolution development gains so far made for many countries. The pandemic has profoundly impacted the ongoing digital transformation accelerating the need to bring countries and individuals to start adopting these technologies so to ensure their basic well-being, and future productivity.

WISeKey Deplatforming and the emergence of Democracy 2.0 webinar will focus on the consequences for democracy  of banning users or discontinuing services  and  removing any existing content the user previously created on social media. One of the most telling subplots to this drama unfolding before us is that the very thing we built to save us — technology — failed us. But we can’t blame technology. While it is perhaps today’s most influential global force, our inability to slow or stop COVID-19 any sooner has not been a technological failure; the waiting game is not the expected result of the world’s rudimentary technological prowess. This isn’t the 1980s. We already possess the wherewithal for a swift solution, at least, one much swifter than we’ve experienced.

The problem — the critical problem — is that our technological competence is fractured both nationally and especially internationally and the regulation of this technology is still primitive allowing all sorts of abuses. Together, we have the tools for a solution towards a democracy 2.0. We just haven’t figured out how to combine them protecting the human. So, we are left to apply them ineffectively and apart with all potential abuses. We aren’t proven to possess a collective willingness to use our aggregated resources for the greatest human good.
