What’s happening?

FullSTK explores the future of computer engineering through expert-led sessions and onstage content.

Your Web Summit Rio ticket gives you access to all masterclasses and roundtables at the event, as well as to talks on FullSTK and 13 other tracks.

Learn how code could be replaced with quantum superpositions and DNA enzymes capable of processing data at incredible speed. FullSTK will also  explore the impact of identity orchestration on development,  the future of ambient computing, and developments in AI and ML.

Security and compliance
As legislation becomes more stringent, hackers develop more sophisticated tools to steal our data. With a rise in cyberwarfare, what are the new security tools and tactics, and what can companies and nation states do to stop these attacks? In a world where a DDOS attack can bring down a business, or worse, how do we keep our data safe?
Privacy and diversity in data

The ethics of AI technology is an increasingly pressing issue. Opaque T&Cs and algorithmic biases are two of the biggest problems, and technology companies are tackling this with new attitudes to data privacy and a drive for diversity. Can big tech uncouple from third-party tracking? Is it possible to design complex AI systems free from bias?

The role of the engineer

DevOps teams were ahead of their time in remote work. Now, with other industries catching up, are engineers still shaping the future of work? While talent and skills abound, why are companies still struggling to acquire technical skilled workers? What impact will the rise of low-code have on the industry?  The world’s leading tech minds set out the challenges they are facing in the world of work.
