Sara M. Watson - Tools for making data legible

Sara M Watson

Berkman Fellow

From The Conference August 19, 2014

"We need to demand more of the digital platforms that gather our data."

Through advanced algorithms and how we interact online, the major digital platforms are turning our behaviour into personal data. Although they are becoming more transparent, how can we make this data more legible to us? 

Listen to Sara M Watson, internet critic at Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard, talk about how we can make sense of the data behind the scenes with digital tools and plugins as well as personal interventions.
