Our society relies on open source software in a fundamental way. Yet we often take this digital infrastructure for granted and ignore potential risks. In this talk, Johannes Wachs will discuss and attempt to quantify systemic risks present in open source ecosystems. His emphasis lies on social risks, highlighting that a few key individuals play a critical role in these decentralized systems. Johannes will conclude by discussing potential solutions and improvements.
