Data is one of the biggest threats to our generation. The democratisation of technology is enabling bad actors to manipulate data and corrupt individuals, from politicians (think Trump) to foreign fighters (think ISIS). Advances in data science and AI will certainly save lives and cure diseases, but the same technology can easily be used for darker purposes.

We’re not immune, nor are we helpless in this battle. We have a responsibility to understand how our data and actions are playing a part in creating vulnerabilities which can be exploited. Join Davey as he leverages his experiences with government, security forces and activists to protect our technology, AI in particular, from weaponisation.
