Bright Internet aims to establish a safe Internet platform which can preventively identify and eliminate the malicious anonymous origins of global cybercrimes and terrors. Nevertheless, Bright Internet also aims to maintain the freedom of expression and privacy protection which may be infringed by the preventive measures. Research for Bright Internet studies the validity of Bright Internet principles and designs systems and technologies that can fulfill the conflicting goals effectively and efficiently. The design spectrum of Bright Internet encompasses technologies and standards, laws and policies, and international collaboration and global governance structure.
Bright Internet Global Summit (BIGS) is a global forum of exchanging the vision and research outcomes on various issues of Bright Internet. It is also a channel to derive agreements among stakeholders and member countries for mutual benefits which cannot be realized by a single country alone. Stakeholders include researchers, research institutions, business leaders and practitioners, government agencies, legislators, and international organizations.
Through discussions and agreements reached at the BIG Summit, an international organization, Bright Internet Global Organization (BIGO), will be established in order to support the operation of Bright Internet and officialize the global common agreement.
