Prospect Behind the Headlines: Cambridge Analytica
With the creation of the internet, technology companies and social media platforms have come to dominate the digital landscape. In an age where our lives are increasingly being shared and acted out online, our digital footprint and the data we create has become of increasingly important value. Indeed, the use of algorithms to gather and analyse data is not only accepted, but widespread in a wide range of sectors such as retail advertising and political campaigning. However, the recent Facebook and Cambridge Analytica revelations have raised key issues relating to privacy.
While there was immediate condemnation over the business practices of Cambridge Analytica, many questions still remain regarding what level of accountability we should be able to expect from social media companies. Join our panel of experts to find out more.
Currently confirmed speakers include Prospect contributor James Ball, and Shahmir Sanni, Whistleblower, Former Secretary of BeLeave and Vote Leave volunteer.
