Benjamin Bayart on privacy, freedoms and democracy

We have invited Benjamin Bayart to talk about privacy, freedoms and democracy. Benjamin is known for his involvement in the Quadrature du Net, the “Exégètes Amateurs” and the French Data Network FDN, as well as the FDN Federation.

What is the relationship between targeted advertising, mass surveillance and a dictatorship? Why is there more lobbying in Brussels around personal data than around energy? How is it that the metadata are so “talkative” and how can it be even more complex than data? Here are all the questions Benjamin tackles, by showing an extraordinary pedagogy to explain why we need to regain control over our personal data and our digital devices.

We are really sorry for our anglophone readers, the video is only available in French.
