“Our data rights are our human rights”- Speaker Veronica Barassi
Anthropologist Veronica Barassi campaigns and writes about the impact of data technologies and artificial intelligence on human rights and democracy in general. She is a Professor in Media and Communications at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. She is also the author of Activism on the Web: Everyday Struggles against Digital Capitalism. The digital platforms used by everybody each and every day, from online games to education apps and to the big social media sites, may be collecting and selling your children’s data – many of them most probably so. Barassi shares her eye-opening and sometimes somewhat shocking research which might encourage parents to look closer at digital terms and conditions instead of just blindly accepting them.
Maybe it is time to demand protections that will help their children towards a better future. Veronica Barassi questions the implications and indeed the consequences of building a society where data traces are made to speak for and about citizens across a lifetime. Is the story of our life to be made up of various algorithms? Is it to be sold to third-party companies and institutions for advertising purposes? What if these algorithms are inaccurate and biased?
