Biden administration puts privacy on the agenda
The Biden administration would like to hear more on why tech platforms should stop listening in on you.
- The NTIA is especially interested in the intersection between privacy, equity, and civil rights.
- The talks will be held in mid-December.
Specifically, NTIA has noted that it wants to see how data collection can lead to “discriminatory targeted advertising” or uses facial recognition software that “uses race as a factor in predicting academic success.”
California is already leading the pack on data privacy protections, and the findings from the NTIA’s listening sessions could seriously impact what a federal policy could look like.
