Redefining Society

The Data Divide | Yes, In Our Digital Societies We Have That Too | A Conversation With Gillian Diebold | Redefining Society Podcast With Marco Ciappelli

Episode Summary

Technology has the potential to be the Social Equalizer — yes, with education, of course — but is it? Well, education is not that either, but that is a story for another time. In this episode, we talk about the Data Divide, which, just like the Digital Divide, has become a social phenomenon that puts underserved and marginalized categories in the unfortunate condition of not taking advance of the Digital Age as they should and could.

Episode Introduction

Technology has the potential to be the Social Equalizer — yes, with education, of course — but is it?

Well, education is not that either, but that is a story for another time. In this episode, we talk about the Data Divide, which, just like the Digital Divide, has become a social phenomenon that puts underserved and marginalized categories in the unfortunate condition of not taking advance of the Digital Age as they should and could.

But pay attention as it is different. So often, when we talk about Data, we discuss the fact that organizations, governments, and companies are taking WAY TOO MUCH DATA, and we need to stop them from doing so. But not all Data is the same. There is the one taken to spy, sell, market everything, and somehow control citizens — depending on where you live and who you are — and there is the “good” data, the one that can help you to stay healthy, get a job, get an education, and overall get you in the societal loop that we all need nowadays to thrive.

So, divide, in this case, means that if you are on the wrong side of it, things are getting worst at the same rate that technology gets better. Well, you‘ll get what I mean in this episode of Redefining Society, where we talk about these topics and much more.

Tune in, and listen up!
