Big Data Disasters, Digital Invisibility and the Future of Human Rights in the Information Age, by Nathaniel Raymond

The mass proliferation and adoption of information communication technologies, including smartphones, AI, social media, and satellites are exacerbating natural disasters and causing new forms of manmade crises.  Meanwhile, 20th century conceptions of human rights and data protections have proven insufficient to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Nathaniel Raymond, the founding director of the Signal Program on Human Security and Technology at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, a nearly twenty year veteran of war crimes investigations and humanitarian aid, will offer a roadmap for how traditional conceptions of human rights and human freedom may or may not continue to exist in the digital era.  Sponsored by the Thomas B Healy '50 Fund and the Geosciences Dept.
