Google Tracks Everything You Buy (…and I can prove it!)

I have a public service announcement for you.  Google saves years of information on purchases you’ve made, even outside Google, and pulls this information from Gmail. It’s complicated to delete this private information, and options to turn it off are hidden in privacy settings. But don’t worry, Google says it values your privacy and won’t use this information to sell you ads. Umm…. ok. | Big shout to DuckDuckGo!

Big Brother in the Office

How far will companies infringe on their worker’s privacy for the sake of efficiency? Now, and in the very near future, companies will take corporate surveillance to a whole new level. What I discuss in this podcast goes well beyond reading your emails or monitoring your chats on Slack. Tune in now to see what I mean. | This podcast, for the most part, was recorded live at the Hacking HR forum in Atlanta.

  • What IBM’s ability to predict whether someone is leaving – via AI – means for employees
  • Whether AI can be truly unbiased, and if it can be more or less human than humans
  • How a restaurant chain accidentally discriminated against certain communities
  • Why New York State barring marijuana testing is as much about a talent shortage as it is about relaxing drug laws

Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems – Living in the Age of Big Data

If you want to learn something truly fascinating that you might not have considered before, go to your favorite search engine and look up the phrase, “big data is a civil rights issue.” As you scan through the search results and glean tidbits of data from the descriptions, or skim the various articles, you will no doubt see that the world is sitting on a powder keg of outrage. Algorithms and automation threaten to divide my country more profoundly than any political unrest around civil war statues, rumors of Russian collusion or fake hate crimes ever could. Indeed, when it comes to racial disparity in terms of opportunity or various life advancements, nothing is more injurious than the unintended consequences of machine learning. When I consider the effects on society and the labor market, I shudder at the pending reality of it all.

Just over a year ago, I wrote an article on big data and speculated on the societal implications. I called it “This is Why Big Data is a Civil Rights Issue.” Now, in this podcast, I am revisiting that topic and going a bit deeper in my analysis. This report told in 3 parts is…

  • BIG DATA, BIG BIAS – Where I explore the unintended consequences of so-called “unbias” algorithms.
  • BIG DATA, BIG MONEY – Where I look at how much money data brokers are making off of my privacy and the incentive they have to go even further.
  • BIG DATA, BIG ESCAPE – Where I consider my options, after learning more about my lack of privacy on the internet.

Stay tuned, for a very special report
