The Philosopher journal and Café Culture North East present "Privacy, Power, and the Data Economy": Carissa Véliz in conversation with Alexis Papazoglou.
In her new book, Privacy Is Power, Carissa Véliz argues that whoever has the data has the power. If we give our data to companies, the wealthy will rule. If we give our data to governments, we will endure some form of authoritarianism. Only if people keep their data will society be free. Privacy matters because it gives power to the citizenry, which is where it belongs in a democracy.
