Surveillance is creeping into every part of our lives – from the moment we wake up and check our phones, to when we’re listening to our smart speakers or surfing the internet, our personal data is being constantly captured by big corporations in a hyperconnected data economy.
In this WIRED Briefing, Véliz and Williams will discuss the need to better understand the power of data, sharing ways we can protect our privacy and implement regulation.
