The sponsoring agencies will not only provide lectures and promotional services to improve and spread the data sovereignty awareness, but cooperate in Gyeonggi Province’s data sovereignty policy implementation after the forum.
As data have become an important value in the current society, ‘individuals’ data sovereignty’ will be discussed for the first time in the world under the subject of ‘Making a Fair Data World Together.’ Domestic and international data sovereignty and MyData experts, the related government agencies, and overseas private organizations will discuss the ways of and the users’ role in creating a fair data world with a focus on individual rights.
At the opening ceremony on September 8, Governor Lee Jaemyung of Gyeonggi Province will give an opening address followed by a keynote lecture by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, titled ‘Transformation in the Digital World and Data Sovereignty.’
The keynote lecture that will last about 30 minutes can be watched only through real-time channels, such as the Digital Sovereignty International Forum website (DSIF2021.com) and Gyeonggi Province’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/ggholics).
