Jonathan Zittrain

Harvard Computer Science and Law Professor, Jonathan Zittrain is a renowned authority on the future of the internet and an enlightening keynote speaker. Jonathan discusses the Internet of today and how it is threatened because of its runaway success, as well as the power of big data and how this has been alternately over-estimated and under-appreciated. 

Jonathan Zittrain is an internationally-known cyberlaw scholar, writer and speaker, who currently teaches at Harvard and Stanford Universities.

Jonathan's main areas of interest include law and policy surrounding the internet, as well as intellectual property, censorship, content control and computer security. He is widely regarded as a leading expert in his field.

Jonathan was exellent, he provided a entertaining and highly stimulating presentation, and as our final keynote gave delegates great food for thought. Jonathan also coped brilliantly with the "virtual" setting (by videolink) and in spite of this was able to encourage interaction with delegates. Feedback from delegates attending the conference have rated Jonathan's keynote as one of the highlights of the event. Many thanks!
