So, Encrypted Media Extensions were born & Digital Rights Management appeared in our browsers.In this talk, we'll explore the technical details behind Encrypted Media Extension (EME), Content Decryption Modules (CDM) like Widevine, and the foundation of Web Digital Rights Management (DRM). How? By reverse engineering Netflix and building our own personal Netflix video player!",

Cisco estimated that by the end of this year, 80 to 90 percent of all global internet traffic will come from video data (*2 Cisco estimation of growth of global Internet traffic over time).Based on these unbelievably high stats, I believe that every web developer would benefit from a basic understanding of the mechanics behind \"DRMed\" videos on the web and the history behind them.",

In the quest for efficiency, practitioners should consider whose interests are at heart and what their implications are on people interacting with these products.We will challenge efficiency in UX through group learning. First, the facilitators will present the problem and lead a discussion on ethical questions in UX. Participants will then break into small groups to brainstorm challenges and solutions. Finally, we will map these findings on a wall, connecting the participants’ work together.",

In groups, we will then create design fictions focussed on the future of smart homes from the point-of-view of victims of domestic abuse. Participants will be asked to approach the fictions from a perspective of cyber-security and -privacy design.",
"goal": "The session aims to broaden discussions on privacy and security to include users that are often denied a voice, such as victims of domestic abuse. Current technology development trends point to ever-increasing data collection and sharing. Concepts for the Social Internet of Things envision automated data and services exchange between devices in close physical proximity, or between devices in a “relationship” (even if they belong to different people). Although these visions of the future may not be seen as an issue for many users, we believe that the design of cyber-privacy and -security can greatly benefit from learning from extreme user cases. Therefore, the main goal of the session is to make discussions on cyber-privacy and -security more inclusive.",

This session will present an overview of this platform and describe how we shifted to an active focus on user experience to promote community engagement as a result of our Mozilla Global Sprint feedback and discussions. This led to a pilot initiative to engage in partnerships with communities that face significant disparities in equitable access to close-to-home green spaces. We plan to integrate Parkology within our presentation to take participant questions and suggestions while utilizing the technology as a real-time open back channel to capture and share ideas.",

These are all skills used in threat modeling, and we feel games are one of the best ways to train and encourage their development.",

"description": "Public Code, as opposed to private code, is an early stage concept for a type of code developed with the public interest in mind. Point of departure is that in our emerging platform society, «Code == Code»: Software and policy are both code. The former executed by machines and the latter by humans. This means we need to look differently at the software developed for public tasks than we do for private tasks. It is held to standards to guarantee that it is inclusive, usable, adaptive, open and sustainable.In this workshop we look at what Public Code is, how it is different from private code and how we can make responsible tech work for everyone.",
"goal": "This workshop aims to further develop the concept of Public Code. More concretely: How should we understand Public Code, and how can we create it? What kind of technological and institutional arrangements are needed to shift towards the production of Public Code.",

This format is very similar to a workshop, open to any participants curious to explore the use of choreographic techniques to generate new modes of thinking composition, participation, relations and articulations between bodies and web technologies. Traditionally, a rehearsal is a built in process, a space-time for developing ideas acknowledging unpredictable results. Another important point about the ‘ rehearsal series’ is to break the distancing between mind/body, self/other, subject/object, discovery/invention. Enhancing the idea of process over product: processes of becoming, becoming structures, becoming codes and scripts.Read more: http://joanachicau.com/rehearsal_series.html",

All you need is a web browser.We want to go with our participants on an exploration tour through the amazing neuroanatomy of the brain. We developed a Web app that allows people to work on brain imaging data in the browser – on phones, tablets, or computers.we want to engage our participants into a real-time synchronised collaboration on real brain imaging data and together participate in the scientific research process. Join the fun, join research, become part of our citizen neuroscientist crowd!",
"goal": "For all participants from any background, we aim at: creating a community of people willing to discover the brain together, actively experiencing research in an open & collaborative environment. We would like to welcome everyone into our community and show them how easy it is to join and make a contribution to science. empowering our participants with what they need to continue as autonomous citizen-neuroscientists beyond the time of the Mozilla Festival. We will explore together brain data and learn about it. Participants will learn about the neocortex, its role and its variability across humans and other species.learning how non-neuroscientists approach the tasks involved in the manual delineation of brain structure to improve our tools and create open teaching material",
"required": "If there was a possibility of having an additional tablet, ideally with a stylus or pen, we would be happy to use those during our session since the collaborative drawing/delineation of brain regions is so much fun and allows you a very intuitive insight into the data. Otherwise we will use the ones that we can bring plus the phones of our participants :)",

Decentralisation means that there is no single point of failure – not one specific computer system that can (accidentally) be switched off or (intentionally) censored – nor is there one proprietary actor who can exercise control.This can have a profound impact on the world as we know it today. In this interactive session, it will be analysed which revolutionary protocols such as Proof-of-Stake, Smart Contracts and IPFS could enable this change. Furthermore, real-life use cases that are already happening [e.g. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations], as well as ideas for use cases for in the future [e.g. Blockchainified Citizen-Science and DAICO’s] are being presented and discussed.",

There might be a difference in the knowledge level of the attendees on the subject due to blockchain technology its complexity. However, it is believed that by explaining relatively complex phenomena on the basis of illustrations and examples it should become comprehensible for all.",

In my session, I will use ML4K (https://machinelearningforkids.co.uk/) to explore the basics of training an ai model. I will introduce an accessible format for ML training 1) Choose your Labels 2) Build a Dataset 3) Train your model 4) Test your model. Then, participants can decide what they would like to have their model predict and train it to classify text, numbers or images. ML4K is connected to IBM-Watson, so as it teaches people the steps of training an ai model, it is able to access a large dataset that allows the models to actually work once the participant \"trains\" their model.",

I want people to go beyond the ideas that \"AI can sort data to make decisions\" or \"AI can learn through examples.\" Anyone can understand the basics of how to train a model (even if the math that goes into ML is a bit challenging)--so let's start there. Everyone who leaves my session will have a an AI model that they have built. Through this process they will learn about classifying data, labelling examples, identifying features, building a dataset, testing the accuracy of a model.
