'Our obsession with data is harming society'
We are increasingly becoming the product of our information – from our social media profile to data about our health, wealth and spending. Big Techs in particular are using our data to develop ever-more targeted services. The next YouTube broadcast by De Nieuwe Wereld and INNOPAY on digital sustainability focuses on the social impact of that we are becoming our data.
In this broadcast of the YouTube channel De Nieuwe Wereld, journalist and philosopher Ad Verbrugge talks to Julia Janssen (artist and designer who creates awareness for the impact of digitalisation on society), Siri Beerends (cultural sociologist, writer and researcher) and José van Dijk (professor in media and digital society at Utrecht University, new media author).
This broadcast on 'you are your data' is part of a series organised by De Nieuwe Wereld and INNOPAY on the topic of digital sustainability.
