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
