Episode four of season two of SOCAP’s podcast series, Money + Meaning: Unlikely Allies Building New Markets for Impact is now available!
Episode 2.4: The Impact of Big Data and Technology
Big data offers great potential to solve social problems–as well as the potential to create new ones. Recent scandals, such the one involving Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, have raised serious questions and concerns about how our data is being collected and used. Consumers, investors, businesses, and governments are now considering the implications of big data on everything from economic development to human rights.
As data collection becomes a fact of everyday life, what questions should we all be asking?
Recorded live at a SOCAP18 session on user data, trust, and transparency, the latest episode of Money + Meaning features a panel made up of an impact investor, a law school professor, and a strategy consultant from a leading design firm discussing how data and technology is already impacting the lives of people today and how it might impact our collective future.
The panelists’ conversation touches upon questions such as: Who owns the vast amounts of personal data that are being collected today? Is privacy becoming something that only the rich can afford? What should businesses be doing to build trust within the marketplace? How are governments attempting to regulate “big data”?
Listen to the latest episode of Money + Meaning to hear their insightful answers.
