Carissa Veliz

Overview

If you're reading this, then there's a good chance a corporation or government entity already knows you are. Sound scary? It is! The trading of personal data as a business model is increasingly being exported to all institutions in society.

As a professor at Oxford University's Faculty of Philosophy and the Institute for Ethics in AI, Carissa Véliz has dedicated her career to exploring the pitfalls of this 'data economy.' In this book, Véliz turns a critical eye on the emerging model of surveillance capitalism, empowering us to become better informed about how our data is being used and protect our privacy from abuses of power.

"The internet is primarily funded by the collection, analysis, and trade of data – the data economy. Much of that data is personal data – data about you."
