Futurecast: The Data Trade-Off
Tue, April 4, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM
In today's increasingly digitized world, we share our data in unprecedented ways, from geolocation data to browsing history to likes and dislikes on social media. This data can be used to create more personalized experiences, but this needs to be balanced with a commitment to privacy.
This leads to core questions we each must face about our digital future: How will decisions about sharing our data impact our digital experiences? How are companies ensuring the privacy and security of consumer data? And what is the role of trust in the balance of privacy and personalization?
Join AT&T Foundry and Ericsson as we speak with Andreas Weigend, former Chief Scientist at Amazon, professor at Stanford University and author of “Data for the People,” to explore the future of data and privacy with moderator Andrew Keen.
