Surveillance Capitalism, Human Autonomy, and You

May 8, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

“Every time we search on a browser, buy something online, or post to our friends on social media, we are leveraging free resources to save time and money. But our clicks and keystrokes also fuel a massive, algorithm-powered industry that exploits our online experiences for profit. These dynamics are the focus of Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, a chilling expose of today’s digital economy. Zuboff details how data about our digital activities is used to create predictive models of our behavior, and how a range of corporate entities manipulate that data for profit and power. Join us for this illuminating discussion about surveillance capitalism’s exploitation of human experience in the digital age and how, according to Zuboff, our privacy, security, and the very idea of free will are being undermined.”
