Taking on the Tech Titans: Reclaiming our data commons
En castellano abajo

Prior to the pandemic, popular opposition to the power of Big Tech was growing. Yet, in the COVID-19 moment, Big Tech has emerged stronger than ever. A new digital economy opportunism is deepening faultlines of inequality, while systems of surveillance are being normalised that will invariably be deployed along class and race lines.

This webinar will explore who owns our data and why it matters, the relevance of data extraction for countries in the Global South, and the impact of COVID-19. It will ask what strategies, structures and institutions are needed at national and international levels to confront Big Tech and reclaim our data commons?

CASTELLANO
Antes de la pandemia, la oposición al poder de las grandes empresas tecnológicas estaba creciendo. Sin embargo, en la era de COVID-19, estas empresas y la vigilancia estatal han salido fortalecidas. Un nuevo oportunismo de la economía digital está profundizando la desigualdad, mientras se normalizan sistemas de vigilancia clasistas y racistas.

Este webinario analizará quiénes son propietarios de nuestros datos y por qué es importante, la pertinencia de la extracción de datos en el Sur Global y los efectos de COVID-19. ¿Qué oportunidades tenemos para promover la justicia digital en tiempos del Coronavirus? (Webinario en inglés con interpretación al español)
