ICT4Peace future conflict and its transformation Sanjana Hattotuwa ! TED Fellow Special Advisor, ICT4Peace Foundation

my past accidental activist

see differently interrogating trauma through technology

the future never comes as we expect it

the present is what we choose to see

concepts frameworks for peaceful change

radical inclusion hearing everybody’s voice

Nimalaruban’s mother | Murder with impunity http://groundviews.org/2012/07/31/ganesan-nimalaruban-a-damning-murder-funeral-and-silence/

The disappeared | Abducted, erased and voiceless 5,676+, second only to Iraq

IDPs | Without land or shelter Those who survive but aren’t counted, http://www.ceylontoday.lk/59-13681-news-detail-relocated-to-nowhere.html

inclusion of everyone, selection around a process, managing exclusion

algorithms The math of discrimination?

bespoke web what’s beyond & behind the tailoring?

Selection bias as the new objective how to critically question?

power and discrimination written into algorithms, rendered invisible, become the new norm

corporate bias conflated with corporate benevolence

implications of convenience over privacy

internet of things when your fridge knows more than mom

watch dogs: CTOS as the future of urban life? http://us.playstation.com/ps4/games/watch-dogs-ps4.html

when does intelligence turn into surveillance? how to maintain control over privacy within ecosystem of competing owners, location sensors, proxy indicators, sentient nodes, ambient observation, pervasive automation

who controls “smart” & “intelligent” things? • a new violence around graded eco-systems of services, with luxury being defined by access, in turn based on the digitisation of discrimination • IP conflict & governance - complexity requires giving up direct oversight & control. Have we imagined conflict resolution mechanisms for the Internet of Things? • cascading conflict from ubiquitous inter-connections

privatisation of information paying more basic rights

expedient profit over principles https://no-spyware-for-dictators.eu

corporations know more than governments

shareholders as primus inter pares

the negotiation of exclusion outside of franchise & democracy

tech innovation & conflict towards endogenous answers

Those who can innovate in the Global South, want to be the next Zuckerberg. Those who can innovate in the Global North, write themselves in as enduring saviours.

JFK with first cohort of Peace Corps, Aug. 1962. South to South Peace Tech Corps, 2015?

Incubators around ICTs for peace From surrogate projects to more organic development

future peace processes challenges & opportunities

How will radical transparency & pervasive technology impact closed door, high-level negotiations? What is the future of Chatham House Rule?

Vint Cerf flags how a DDoS attack can be mounted by fridges against the Bank of America in the future. Impact on a peace process with similar attack?

How can the Internet of Things (smart TVs and fridges) be used creatively in a peace process? Can we reach out to the ‘Other’ interactively using family recipes and bad reality shows?

How will millions of lifestreams, freely accessibly on the web, impact in real time negotiations around identity & resources? How will lifestreams from negotiations impact fragile societies?

big data on the granular digital smoke signals on key issues

big data for context beyond the event driven, underlying drivers of peace & violent conflict

justice & reconciliation what will it mean for for digital natives?

ict4peace for whom? focus & intent matters



our reach should exceed our grasp - or what’s peace building for? ! with apologies to Robert Browning

thank you sanjanahattotuwa@ict4peace.org
