Human Rights, Surveillance, and Epistemic Chaos

Over the last 15 years, large-scale collection of data has become essential to the operations of both the private sector and governments. Electronic devices that we use all day long generate data about what we do. In the aggregate they enable companies and governments to shape behavior. In particular cases these data allow for the minute tracing of individual movements. Powerful entities also control access and dissemination of information, and these entities prominently include platforms like Google, Twitter and Facebook. In the United States these developments have created a situation one could aptly describe as epistemic chaos. This talk explores some of these trends.
