For thousands of years, we have associated identity with people. Identifying ourselves and others has enabled many generations of humans to authenticate, control or gain access, and build trust in individuals and communities. Over the last few decades, as we have become accustomed to the need to identify machines and manage access to networks and information systems, we have seen a shift in focus to trust in those networks and systems. Now we stand on the threshold of technological developments that will challenge our understanding of identity and trust, and demand that we evolve our responses accordingly. Drawing on her cutting-edge research, Dr Baines will take us on a journey to a near future in which people are outnumbered, and authenticity is way more complex than establishing who’s real and who’s a bot.
