Luciano Floridi: Memory in the Information Age

Luciano Floridi, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Information, University of Oxford

Professor Luciano Floridi, one of the five members of Google’s Advisory Board on “the right to be forgotten," will address the recent debate on that topic within a broader interpretation of the impact that information and communication technologies have on our self-understanding, our social interactions and our conceptualization of the world.

Floridi is professor of philosophy and ethics of information at the University of Oxford, where he is the director of research of the Oxford Internet Institute. He has held the UNESCO Chair in Information and Computer Ethics, and in 2012 he was the Chairman of the E.U. Commission’s “Onlife Initiative.”
