Event D1

Carissa Véliz in conversation with Luis Carlos Vélez

 Sede Digital Hay Festival Colombia

How do large corporations and governments use our data to manipulate our behaviour? How do we regulate these practices that end up influencing the health of our democracies? Carissa Véliz (United Kingdom) is Associate Professor at the Institute of Ethics in Artificial Intelligence at Oxford University and contributes to media outlets such as El País, The Guardian, The New York Times, New Statesman and The Independent. In her book Privacy is Power (2020, chosen as a Book of the Year by The Economist) she analyses these and other issues that are among the most urgent debates of our time, arguing, for example, in favour of prohibiting the sale of personal data. In conversation with Luis Carlos Vélez.

Event 3

Cecilia Kang in conversation with Veronica Smink (Spanish version)

Facebook: dangerous liaisons

 Teatro Adolfo Mejía

Facebook is not only the world’s largest social networking service, but also the one that has been involved in most controversy, from the dissemination of fake news to its impact on the outcomes of elections, such as the one that brought Donald Trump to power. The award-winning New York Times journalist Cecilia Kang, who has been investigating the subjects of technology and cybersecurity for over ten years, is the co-author of The Ugly Truth, a book that reveals some of the dark secrets of the social media company, whose stated aim is to create links of friendship among thousands of millions of people around the world. However, as the book finds, Facebook systematically resorts to questionable practices such as selling user data, disinformation and the proliferation of hate speech. In conversation with Veronica Smink.
