Post-Privacy Politics, with Michal Kosinski
Play • 39 min

“We often treat privacy as a quick fix for much deeper social problems - like prejudice and bias”

Our lives are constantly documented. Our Facebook likes, our Tweets and even our credit card statements all reveal information about us. But what about our faces?

Michal Kosinski has demonstrated that off-the-shelf, commercially available AI can analyse facial images and determine sexuality and political preferences with up to 91% accuracy.

If our opinions and preferences are written into our very faces, what does that tell us about the immutability of our values and behaviours?

And what does that mean for privacy?

Listen to Michal explain how we must learn to live in a Post-Privacy world.

“We should just not be making judgements about people based on their faces, regardless of whether those judgments are accurate or not.”
