24h coding competition around the new imperative of the identity in the Phygital world:

Habeas Digital Corpus.

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are digital beings too, thus we need to protect our digital rights, not only data. Habeas Corpus, an ancient common-law writ, has guaranteed the principle of personal inviolability and protected against an unlawful imprisonment. It still lies at the roots of the identity rights. In the third millennium the structure of the reality has fundamentally changed because of accelerated digitalization. Nevertheless, the perception of our identity remained unaltered.

We live both physically and digitally, within our body and our accounts. Yet, our digital existence is barely acknowledged and protected only to a small extent. As digital became an intrinsic part of our life, it must be taken into consideration also in jurisprudential, ethical, and ontological discourse. In this perspective coding, software development and data science take on a new meaning. The complexity of the problem involves various fields that is the reason why our Hackathon is open to the participants from all disciplines.

Phygital Identity Hackathon, that will take place during the Internet Festival in Pisa, has been conceived as the first in a series of events to explore the question of digital identity.

The participants of the Hackathon are invited to creatively address the problem of Phygital Identity, considering not only technological solutions but also their ethical implications.

Hackathon is a celebration of creativity, team working and solution finding.
