London (United Kingdom), 2 April 2020
Registration is now open for The National Archives’ Annual Digital Lecture (happening in Kew on Thursday 2 April 2020, at 18.30).
The global datafication of economy, society and politics has rendered humans into constellations of datapoints. The right to remain anonymous is being squeezed out, as we’re asked to handover our identification, our faces, our social media profiles, our email addresses at every turn. What are the consequences of this death of anonymity?
This year’s speaker is Carly Kind, Director of the Ada Lovelace Institute, an independent research body and think tank with a mission to ensure data and AI work for people and society. She will be speaking on ‘The death of anonymity in the age of identity’. The lecture will be followed by a poster display of digital research at The National Archives.
