What areBinary Talks?

This time, we are happy to present our new Binary Talks series where we will bring experts together to defend and explore different sides of hot tech issues. After attending a fair share of events and organizing our own in Berlin, we realized there were not enough environments for open discussions about some of the controversial topics in tech. Therefore, we created a different type of event that focuses on highlighting both (or more) sides of an argument.

How it works?

  • Two speakers on stage who will take turns expressing their views as they defend their opinions and argue about controversial issues raised by the moderator with the help of questions previously sent in by the community and other experts.
  • Afterwards the floor is open to rapid-fire one-minute questions from the audience about the speakers’ points.

We hope that independently of where you see yourself in this debate, you will learn about the arguments that support diverging opinions.
