UPDATE 21/03/12: Many thanks to everybody who sent in questions and followed the debate online. We discussed everything from self-ironing shirts, to cars that drive themselves, to governments and non-state actors abusing technology to infringe the privacy of individuals. The full video will be posted on Debating Europe tomorrow.
Debating Europe, along with our partner think-tank Friends of Europe, are hosting a live event today at 13h00 CET looking at some of the ways technology will affect Europe in 2050.
