1400 I St NW #450
Washington, DC 20005
Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) invites you to join us on Friday, June 7th, 2019 for a roundtable discussion with Dr. Johnny Ryan, Chief Policy & Industry Relations Officer for Brave Software, to discuss The Future of Ad Tech – Emerging Business Models and Designing for Privacy.
Prior to joining Brave Software, Dr. Ryan was Head of Ecosystem for PageFair, and Chief Innovation Officer of The Irish Times. In recent years, he has been a prominent privacy advocate in the EU, working with digital rights organizations to file formal complaints with regulators in the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, related to advocates’ concerns about the Ad Tech industry and current real-time bidding (RTB) practices (read the primary regulatory complaint here). More recently, Dr. Ryan testified before the U.S. Senate Judicary Committee in a May 21st hearing, “Understanding the Digital Advertising Ecosystem and the Impact of Data Privacy and Competition Policy.” (Watch the hearing)
The discussion will be moderated by Stacey Gray, Senior Counsel at the Future of Privacy Forum.
We will discuss with the group:
- What does the future hold for alternative Ad Tech business models, including blockchain and attention-based models such as the Brave Attention Token (BAT)?
- What does engineering for privacy, or “privacy by design,” mean in the context of advertising technology?
- What’s on the horizon for Ad Tech in Europe?
- & any other questions you have — please feel free to send your questions ahead of time.
Lunch will be provided.
