Panel: Collaborative Platforms to Provoke Change
Futurist and Technology Leader Jimmy Wales is one of the most prominent names in the history of the Internet. Founder of Wikipedia and WT.Social, Wales appears on important lists such as Time Magazine's 100 most influential people and leaders of the World Economic Forum. In his appearance on the main stage, we will explore Wales' experience at the helm of Wikipedia as a revolutionary, collaborative model for managing, curating, and sharing knowledge for free. We will talk about his optimistic vision for the future, about contemporary challenges such as censorship, fake news, and information overload, as well as ways we can act on them.
