[SSRC] The Future of the Internet with Vint Cerf seminar at 10 PM on Tuesday, April 12th

The Future of the Internet with Vint Cerf April 12, 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM EST The future of the internet is the future of humanity. What was once a tool, is now an inescapable part of our lives and livelihoods. It is ever more ubiquitous and complex, consistently creating challenges for which there are no easy answers. From fake news and deepfakes to privacy and data protection, the internet has created wicked problems alongside its immense potential to continue transforming humanity. Where once the job of an internet evangelist may have been to persuade people of the value of getting online, now their job is to persuade us that the torrent of online challenges is not only surmountable, but that the answer is more connectivity, not less. In this presentation Vint Cerf, an American Internet pioneer recognized as one of "the fathers of the Internet", will review the policy issues that have arisen with the growth of the Internet and its new applications, looking ahead to the future impact and implications of the online world. Academic host – Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto Corporate host – TELUS Communications Free registration is available at
