 Full content available on subscription | Length: 52 minutes

Organised annually in Budapest by the Antall József Knowledge Centre in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary and with the support of the International Visegrad Fund, think.BDPST is a strategic conference focusing on perspectives of research, innovation, and future technologies.

The 2020 event, held on 2 October 2020, examined topics such as the future of 5G, data protection in the post-COVID era, or the regulation of tech giants in today’s societies.

In keeping with the theme of Minister Varga's talk (Like or Dislike – Tech Giants and Their Regulation Possibilities), the panel focuses on the debate that has arisen around the contemporary social, political, and economic role played by corporations at the forefront of innovation, commonly referred to as "big tech". The speakers, representing a wide variety of stakeholders, introduce and contrast the most relevant factors involved in the public discourse around the issue, including free markets and free speech, corporate and personal accountability, as well as the necessity and feasibility of regulation.
