The Gig Economy, Privacy, Automation and AI

When: Tuesday, July 17 2018 @ 07:00 PM - - 09:00PM
Where: Main Quad, Building 460
Serra Mall
Stanford, CA 94305
Description: San Francisco Bay Area is ground zero for the world tech transformation from platforms at Uber and Lyft to social media networks like Facebook and search engines like Google. The collection of big data without privacy rights, or the introduction of automation by Tesla and AI without any real controls and regulations, is not only injuring workers but also threatens public rights as our emotions and every private move are captured for profit. The “gig” worker in our automated economy is becoming the majority of workers in the United States and every other developed country. The impact of algorithmic and data-driven management of human workers is happening today at an mind numbing speed, and this panel will look at these technologies and their impact on workers and our society.

Initial speakers:
Todd Davies, Symbolic System Program, Stanford; Center for the Study of Language and Information
Brian Dolber, California State University of San Marcos, Communications and The Gig Economy
Mehmet Bayron, LaborNet, Software, Exploitation and Automation of Tech Workers
Edward Escobar, The Alliance For Independent Workers

Free and open to the public
