Florence Toffa - Gather 2018
Alp builds technology that supports human rights in the digital age. Collecting and analysing big data in real-time, his systems have detected internet blackouts following military operations, terror attacks and political unrest at times of crisis. His NetBlocks initiative sheds light on how states and cyber-attackers manipulate the flow of information, allowing communities to self-organise and defend their rights online. Alp is a Sakharov fellow of the European Parliament and recipient of the 2017 Index on Censorship Freedom of Expression Digital Activism Award.
