Infrastructure for personal data access, storage, and portability. Dataswift liberates the value of personal data. Untethering it from central silos and distributing it to individual Personal Data Accounts. Fully owned, fully accessible, fully permissible.
Irene Ng, leading data privacy expert and CEO of Dataswift, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily podcast. We discuss big tech's responsibility in protecting data privacy and the importance of the ethical data economy. Irene also shares her controversial opinion about why big tech is actually undervalued and why big tech's problem isn't the monetization of data; it's the lack of transparency.
