EP12 - Why data rights will be the new civil rights

June 24, 2021

Most of us would agree that the world of work will change more in the next decade than it has probably in the last 250 years since the first industrial revolution. However, it is also the case that there has never been a time in history when so many critical decisions have been made on our behalf, with so little transparency.
In today's show, we have Dan Turchin, sharing his insights with us on the hype of today, AI, and especially AI ethics and how we can be human first in an era of technology, i.e. how to use AI technology in an ethical and responsible manner.
Artificial intelligence, in essence, is math + data. With AI becoming commonplace, the need for data is growing as well but we need to ensure that companies treat our data responsibly. As a result, data rights will be the new civil rights.
