Nabiha Syed is the chief executive officer of The Markup. She interviews Dr. Joy Buolamwini who has been thinking about collective harm and AI for years, especially when it comes to algorithmic accountability and justice.

We, like Buolamwini, are optimists: We can demand a better path than the one we’re on, but that requires us thinking collectively, participating, and innovating in a different way than we have in the past.

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: Managers turn to surveillance software to ensure employees are (really) working from home; Coronavirus impact: Meat processing plants weigh risks of prosecution if they’re blamed for spreading infection; How Cybercriminals are Weathering COVID-19; Zoom or Not?; and NSA Offers Agencies Guidance for Choosing Videoconference Tools.
