The topic of the tenth episode of the second season of the «Efekt Sieci» podcast is data. What does our state know about us, what data on citizens» activities does the public administration collect, and what does it do with this data and how does it handle processing and storing it?
The expert for the episode is Weronika Przecherska, a DELab UW analyst and PhD student at the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Warsaw, who answers about the results of her research and questions from Dr. Justyna Pokojska about:
- the definition of state data – is it just the data we leave on official forms?
- sources from which the state obtains information about its citizens,
- ways of using a variety of data, for example from loyalty cards, search engines or social media,
- the challenges faced by countries in the face of the growing challenge of dataification and big data,
- the security of data generated by the health sector (which by definition has all possible data about us),
- the dangers lurking in our data and how different countries are dealing with it,
- the transformation of the model citizen, ready to live in a dataficated state.
