And there are alternative messages sumarised by Dusan Stojicevic ;-)

  • We need to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) in order to develop an ethical code for AI. Artificial Intelligence will never understand sarcasm. So, expect sarcastic hacking in future years.
  • EuroDIG 2028: robots are discussing whether they should shut down the research on human intelligence vs. the ethical side of continuing the research.
  • IDN is not an acronym of "IT Develop Network", but for "Innovation Doesn’t Needed". By speaking English in an IDN session, we missed target audience.
  • Blockchain is a chain which your brain produces to block it when you try to understand it.
  • GDPR session: the moderation by non-European citizen, clearly made a point of GDPR jurisdiction.
  • It's premature to speak about any kind of neutrality with a teenager like EuroDIG. I also feel like a teenager – my favourite topics at this EuroDIG school were the breaks.
  • Discussions continued after sessions - when you need to explain what DNS is after a session of the future functionality of the DNS
  • IoT session solved the problem of what to do when you're stuck in an elevator: don't jump, try to hack it.
  • Dangerous crypto party took place under constant surveillance from next door: Organiser’s secretariat was watching - do they behave and is there no loud music on the party?
  • Weather feeling social components: rain on the gala was helpful for people to connect closely, whilst the stop of rain helped to further explore their new connections.
  • The noise in the hall was such a big problem, it forced even Germans to speak Russian.
  • Sun during coffee breaks made people to squeeze in the shadows, and therefore connection rate was 15 percent higher compared to a break without sun.
  • Opening ceremony was a good yoga exercise – lips are moving in complete silence, while speakers were mumbling the mantra. If you want to combat hate speech, the opening ceremony gave you a good example of how to.
  • If you think that these messages are hate speech, let's go outside to solve the issues. If you are bigger than I am, I will use my right to be forgotten, or maybe we can meet at the bar with water coolers to cool off and drink a coffee.
