Centre for Quantum and Society's Panel Discussion 'Privacy and Surveillance in the Quantum Age' to CPDP2024 in Brussels

The Centre for Quantum & Society organizes the panel discussion "Privacy and Surveillance in the Quantum Age: Developments on Quantum Sensing Technologies and Their Implications", as part of the program for the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) 17th International Conference. The event will take place on May 22, 2024 in Brussels, featuring experts from academia and industry. 

Quantum sensing technology (QST) is a rapidly evolving field within the quantum technology landscape, yet it often receives less attention than other quantum technologies. QSTs have a more advanced technology-readiness and wider possible application areas, spanning biomedicine, mining, environmental monitoring, defense, intelligence and space exploration. 

The panel will delve into the implications of these developments, particularly regarding privacy, surveillance, and data protection. Key topics to be explored include the properties and potential applications of quantum sensing technologies, along with the opportunities and challenges for deploying them outside of the lab; notable investment developments and key actors in the quantum sensing space; privacy law and policy implications of quantum sensing, and strategies for achieving a proper balance between societal interests, taking into account the dual-use nature of certain quantum sensing applications and current issues in privacy and surveillance studies related to advanced sensing applications. 

Panelists for the session include: 

- Bengi Zeybek (Moderator), University of Amsterdam (NL), Academic

- Philippe Bouyer, Quantum Delta NL (NL), Academic

- Masa Galic, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (NL), Academic

- Chris Hoofnagle, University of California, Berkeley (US), Academic

- Henning Soller, McKinsey (DE), Business 

This panel discussion will provide a unique opportunity for experts and stakeholders to explore the intersection of quantum sensing technologies, privacy, and surveillance, and to engage in insightful dialogue on the future implications of quantum sensing technology for society. 

Event Details:

- Date: May 22nd, 2024

- Location: Maison de la Poste, Floor 2

- Time: 10:30 – 11:45
