Also, I'm looking for a suitable PeerTube instance to publish my contributions to Campus Talks, a column on data visualisation called 'Show me the Data!'. Feel free to send suggestions :)



A new open access publication by Carissa Véliz: Moral zombies: why algorithms are not moral agents.

link.springer.com/article/10.1

"When algorithms cause moral havoc, as they often do, we must look to the human beings who designed, programmed, commissioned, implemented, and were supposed to supervise them to assign the appropriate blame. For all their complexity and flair, algorithms are nothing but tools, and moral agents are fully responsible for the tools they create and use."

NGOs urge EU legislators to ban unlawful tracking in online advertising. Great idea to mitigate !

“This is a terrific opportunity to install privacy by default in the online world. (...) We have the opportunity to create an internet that better serves users by stopping built in data harvesting and tracing methods. It’s important that the European Parliament realises it can stand up for people, and not defend the interests of the big tech platforms.”

Very interesting episode: Carissa Véliz on How to Improve Online Speech with Pseudonymity

I'm hosting an *unconference* session myself on how to improve data literacy =)

Currently live: Caroline Goulard from dataveyes.com/, on: "The Power of Data Viz Over Black Boxes"

An interesting insight:
"Technology is still designed to limit us instead of empower us"
-> this is exactly why I am not very enthusiastic about the covid-tracing app: youtu.be/nZiB2cKiXa4?t=1622
