Mapping Data Flows – How the Largest Tech Firms Use Your Data

October 29, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Mapping Data Flows Flier

Join John Battelle — Senior Research Scholar and Adjunct Professor at SIPA, and Co-Founder & CEO of Recount Media — and a team of researchers from the Brown Institute for Media Innovation, the Journalism School and SIPA, in understanding how the largest technology companies collect, use, and share user information across the internet. We’ve transformed the “Big Four” (Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook) terms of service and data policies — the thousands of lines of code that govern their use of your data — into a database powering an interactive visualization, an initial version of which we invite you to explore and critique.

This event is co-sponsored by SIPA’s TMac, Management Specialization, Tech & Policy Initiative, Entrepreneurship & Public Policy Initiative, Brown Institute for Media Innovation.

Lunch will be served.
