"How Data Analytics and Technology Design will Dictate Our Civic Future"

Data-driven algorithms and technology designers are the new policymakers. No one elected them, and most people do not know their names, but the decisions they make dictate the code by which we conduct our daily lives and govern our country. Challenges to the privacy and security of our personal data were part of the first wave of this change; as technology progresses, every demographic value and every law has come up for grabs and will likely be redefined by what technology does or does not enable. How will it all fit together or fall apart? This talk surveys unforeseen consequences and brainstorms on a way forward with new innovative technologies designed in the public interest. Examples include contact tracing and the election.
