#rp19 speaker Audrey Tang: "Fork the government!"
"When we see 'internet of things', let’s make it an internet of beings.
When we see 'virtual reality', let’s make it a shared reality.
When we see 'machine learning', let’s make it collaborative learning.
When we see 'user experience', let’s make it about human experience.
When we hear 'the singularity is near', let us remember: the Plurality is here."

In her keynote speech, she will explain the meaning of collaboration, partnership and innovation for Taiwan’s road towards a plurality-based ecological democracy where innovation is not just possible but also fun.
