Description

"A Death Online" panel discussion
When we die, our physical possessions are only part of what we leave behind – there is also our diverse and data-rich online life. But what happens to your data when you die? Do our lives continue online after we die? Join BBC presenter and social psychologist Dr Aleks Krotoski, Prof Wendy Moncur, Chair of Digital Living at the University of Dundee, digital death researcher Stacey Pitsillides and psychologist Dr Elaine Kasket to discuss the technical, psychological and legal issues we now face in death due to our lives being increasingly lived online.
