13:55 – 15:15 Panel discussion: should behavioural advertising be banned?
Behavioural advertising involves monitoring people’s online behaviour, and using the collected information to show people individually targeted advertisements. The past decade there has been much discussion about how the practice should be regulated. Recently, some have called for a ban on ‘surveillance advertising’. This panel explores whether behavioural advertising should be prohibited.

15:15 – 15:45 Coffee
15:45 – 17:00 Two workshops, parallel tracks
Visitors must choose one of the tracks.
Track I - Artificial intelligence and the risk of discrimination
Artificial intelligence (AI) can help our societies in many ways. But when AI is used to make decisions about people, it can also lead to unfair effects. This workshop explores what policymakers could do to protect privacy and fairness in the context of AI.
Moderator: Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius
Track II - Privacy enhancing technologies and medical research
Privacy enhancing technologies enable cross-organizational data analysis without compromising privacy, for better early detection and personalized treatments. To what extend are these technologies already adopted for medical research applications? Will the use of privacy enhancing technologies be a requirement for medical research in the near future?

What is the conference about
The PI.lab conference 2018 focuses upon the relationship between humans and technology. The embeddedness of apps, smart phones and the internet of things in most if not all facets of daily life questions the autonomy of human beings. The complex and hard to oversee data economy that has been created over the past decades makes control over personal data illusory, so it seems. Simultaneously, many persons profit from seamless interconnectivity and an abundant supply of services that are personalized and that have become indispensable both in working environments and in daily practices. And people may exercise more autonomy thanks to the help of personalized services. This dichotomy will be elucidated and discussed in this year's conference.

Self-sovereignty is the phrase that is very popular these days in identity management and is meant as an aim to "bring people back in control" of their identity. The concept is discussed by Bart Jacobs, professor of computer security at Radboud University Nijmegen, and chair of the Privacy by Design foundation that is operating the identity platform IRMA.
The things we do are more and more mediated or facilitated by digital systems and platforms. As a result, digital systems increasingly determine what people experience, know, desire, and do. Accordingly, controlling the digital lifeworld has come to the centre of modern day politics. Will digital technologies empower people and set them free or will they diminish our freedom to think, act an communicate?
The panel will discuss the pro's and con's of the various Self-sovereign identity management approaches: will there be one 'winner' or will there be several co-existing approaches? How will they impact the autonomy of the user? Do they differ in what they offer? What is needed to make the concept of SSI work in real life? What will the benefits be? What pitfalls to expect and conquer?
Patients are granted new rights to control their data. Health data cooperatives want to monitor their data collectively in order to improve care treatments. People suffering rare diseases organise themselves in order to gather evidence on treatments and medication. Are developments indeed moving in a direction of more informed control for autonomous patients, protecting their privacy? Or is privacy illusory in today's complex care systems?
The vaudeville show „Die Nacht ist nicht allein zum Schlafen da …“ features German songs of the 1920s to 1940s, as sung by as Marlene Dietrich, Johannes Heesters and many other singers that are largely forgotten today. These songs tell ordinary and extraordinary stories about people, fashion, faraway countries and, naturally, about love. Sometimes simply hilarious, sometimes pretty much tongue-in-cheek, but at times melancholic as well. They are performed live on stage by professional opera singer Jan Kristof Schliep.
