New Op-ed in Globe & Mail newspaper: "Ottawa’s post-hoc privacy plan still leaves the power with Big Tech"

I have another op-ed in the Globe & Mail newspaper. It came out on Friday last week and is about Canada's new Digital Charter Implementation Act 2020, which was published on 17th November. It's called "Ottawa’s post-hoc privacy plan still leaves the power with Big Tech":

"For many people, the digital economy – especially the promise of automated decision-making systems powered by artificial intelligence (AI) – will solve all sorts of social and political problems, from rising health care costs to the spread of misinformation. And yet, regulation of digital technologies, personal data and AI are almost always framed by their commercial applications; they’re rarely considered an issue for collective societal decision-making".

The rest can be read here.
