A new open access publication by Carissa Véliz: Moral zombies: why algorithms are not moral agents.

link.springer.com/article/10.1

"When algorithms cause moral havoc, as they often do, we must look to the human beings who designed, programmed, commissioned, implemented, and were supposed to supervise them to assign the appropriate blame. For all their complexity and flair, algorithms are nothing but tools, and moral agents are fully responsible for the tools they create and use."

NGOs urge EU legislators to ban unlawful tracking in online advertising. Great idea to mitigate !

liberties.eu/en/stories/adtech

“This is a terrific opportunity to install privacy by default in the online world. (...) We have the opportunity to create an internet that better serves users by stopping built in data harvesting and tracing methods. It’s important that the European Parliament realises it can stand up for people, and not defend the interests of the big tech platforms.”

World bank report: Data for better lives

blogs.worldbank.org/opendata/w

"Data is a powerful weapon in the fight against poverty—one that can potentially transform the lives of poor people. But it’s also a double-edged sword. New rules of the road are called for—a social contract for data—to get more value out of data while protecting people against harm and ensuring access and representation."

There is a lot of work to do.

We could start by banning trading in personal data :)
