Surveillance Is Not a Social Good: Technocapital, Public Health, and the Pandemic

Technology companies are rapidly repurposing themselves amidst the global pandemic, leveraging and expanding existing surveillance economies in the name of public health. What are the potential implications and differential outcomes of these collaborations between health authorities and technocapital? This talk explores the nascent intersections of surveillance capitalism and public health and suggests a framework for anticipating and containing the anti-democratic and authoritarian practices that may emerge.

This is an online event. It will be live streamed on the Centre for Ethics YouTube Channel at 3pm, Friday, June 5. Channel subscribers will receive a notification at the start of the live stream.
