data collection, privacy rights, artificial intelligence
We live in a data-driven economy. Many people feel like consumers are on the losing end of an economic data-battle with tech giants, but this is simply not true; our data can drive innovation. That’s right—personal data collected from you and me can influence new technologies that will improve our lives. This should excite us, but our fear of losing data privacy can quell our excitement for progress and even restrict innovation. Our quality of life has already begun to improve through data driven innovation, and technological progress is not slowing down. If we let our fear of losing data privacy slow us down, we may get left behind. Choose to define your perception of data collection by your desire for progress instead of your fear, and you will find that you really are trading up.
