The Problem of Data
September 4th 2020. WEDF's John Marshall's introductory talk at London Tech Week's Ethical Data Festival entitled "The Problem of Data". A non-technical survey, the talk explores the scope and nature of some of the issues around data. Implicating the entire knowledge economy, and embracing ‘fake news,’ media narratives, and the impact of social media quite as naturally as considerations of bias in data analytics or AI, these issues are non-obvious and may in fact be the most important of our age.
