Freedom Unfinished

Private Sector Data Economy

September 12, 2022 ACLU of Massachusetts Season 1 Episode 1
Freedom Unfinished
Private Sector Data Economy
Show Notes

In the first episode of Freedom Unfinished, we ask what is "big data" and how is information fed into the data capitalist economy? How have private industries acquired all this personal data and what are they currently doing with it? How has a rush to "turn the information into insight" set the stage for sobering lessons about the limits of these tech-powered conclusions? 

Get the answers to these questions and more by listening to ACLUM executive director Carol Rose and Technology for Liberty program director Kade Crockford explore big data and artificial intelligence through the lens of power, democracy and the broken systems that will determine the future of our rights.
