EVENT DETAILS
From surveillance & location tracking to facial recognition, progress in AI & data collection is wide-ranging in scope & impact, with the potential to both further & jeopardize the rights of citizens. Join the NYU Data Future Lab to find out how to combat authoritarian tech as a startup, investor, enterprise, & consumer.

Over the past decade, "authoritarian" has become synonymous with defense tech, facial recognition & surveillance, robotics in policing, social media giants, & the big business of politics that affects citizens in the U.S. & across the globe. More recently, it has become a booming industry, with fast-growing startups on both sides of the debate.


Even as concerns are raised about potential & impact, some players in the field are finding ways to remove negative implications from tech remedies while others are tackling problem areas headfirst. The solution lies in the involvement of every stakeholder, from founder & investor to client & policymaker.


At the latest in NYU Data Future Lab's free, virtual 90-Minute Tech series, experts - including keynote speaker Clay Shirky - innovators, funders, & founders combating authoritarian tech discuss the industry landscape & impact, the solutions emerging, the role of the government as regulator & client, & more.
