Facing Up to Surveillance - Uses and Abuses of Data and AI

Sightline CEO, Wally Trenholm, delivered a talk on the Uses and abuses of Data and AI at the Bizskule Surveillance workshop at UofT on April 11th.


Advances in data and smart technology have allowed in recent years for leaps forward in safety and security.

Data analysis has provided insights into how we move through the world and ways it can be made safer. Technology has enhanced these insights to bring security and surveillance to new heights of innovation. With these advances however, come new questions about data ownership, privacy, and how much surveillance of our every movement is too much?

This discussion will expand to showcase the role of data, AI and smart technology in ways our society has become safer and secure, while also addressing its potential for changing how the concept of privacy is changing in your daily life.
