Speaking on

“Exploring Tech Policy”

Technology changes and is changed by society. There are few other change agents as powerful as technology in our society, and the companies innovating in this space will inevitably have to ask themselves difficult questions about tech policy. In his talk he will explore some of the future challenges as we move into the next phase of an information society slowly transforming into a noise society.

Dr. Nicklas Lundblad leads a small team of policy experts in analyzing and advising on public policy. He has worked with tech policy since he wrote his first article on the politics of crypto in 1994. Prior to joining Google he was senior executive vice president of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and co-founded Swedish current affairs magazine Neo.. He currently serves on the Swedish ICT-council, advising the Swedish ICT-minister, works as a member of Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt's reference group on Internet Freedom and has been a member of several corporate and organizational boards. Nicklas was recently elected member of the Royal Engineering Academy in Sweden and is an Eisenhower fellow. In 2009 he was recognized as ICT-person of the year by Swedish publications Computer Sweden and Affarsvarlden. He holds a B.A. in philosophy, a L.LM and a PhD in applied information technology.
