Technology and Data Privacy
Technological progress proceeds at an unprecedented speed and ethical awareness for its ethical implications is clearly on the rise. Particularly in the realm of artificial intelligence, in the context of blockchain and evidently in the field of data privacy, companies are confronted with significant ethical challenges but also opportunities
I give advice and support to companies and other actors in designing technologies in accordance with their values and in using them in a considerate but effective manner.
Here are some exemplary questions:
- How can we use technology in a way that strengthens our values and our mission?
- What does credible data privacy mean and what does a convincing data policy look like?
- Where and how do we use artificial intelligence?
- How much transparency is required for ‘fair’ algorithms’?
- Do crypto currencies match our convictions? And how does blockchain fit into the picture?
