Young & Ali discuss the importance of the data economy, ethical AI, data privacy and security, and bias. Young highlights the importance of data privacy and being able to opt-out when you begin to engage with company. When it comes to bias, data isn't inherently biased, but we must be mindful that it may become biased based on how it's analyzed and interpreted. It isn't all doom and gloom, however. AI and data allow us to do amazing, and sometimes lifesaving, things work – as seen with the COVID-19 vaccines, the work being done with genomics and biotech.
