Description

Data flows around the world as computers trade in 0s and 1s, silently making decisions that affect all of us, every day.
Meanwhile, we humans shout louder than ever before, spreading news and opinions through social media, polarising society and pitting ourselves against each other. This book reveals some of the hidden impacts of technology on society and on individuals, and explores how we can mitigate these impacts through policy change and personal action. Regulation is a delicate balance between reducing online harm and ensuring free speech; between making helpful data available and protecting privacy. New Zealand authors delve into deepfakes and democracy, indigenous data sovereignty, digital inclusion, the environmental impacts of globalised data and the drive to combat online fascism in this important new addition to the BWB Texts series.
