TED Circles' June 2021 theme is "Our Bodies". Pandemic has placed a spotlight on the data generated by, for and from our bodies. Let's meet on Juneteenth, and in light of National Indigenous History Month + Pride Month, to discuss:
- What are the ethical concerns when collecting data generated by human bodies?
- Are there differences in data based on ethnicities?
- Who should own data from our bodies?
- Who should govern the technologies that use the data from our bodies?
