Making Data Shift Power: Bex Hong Hurwitz and Rashida Richardson

Self-driving cars, biased algorithms, and a social media quiz that scrapes your data — it seems like the only tech headlines we have are about disasters. But what about the original promise of tech to innovate and empower? This week, Bex Hong Hurwitz, a Data & Society fellow and Rashida Richardson of the AI Now Institute, join the show to discuss the subversive and democratic potential of technology, and how we harness it. Then, we talk to Kayleigh Walsh from the UK-based tech cooperative Outlandish, which is a model that centers on empowerment and sustainability.
