Forgive us if you have heard this one already, but whistleblowers are the saviors of digital society. From Edward Snowden to Christopher Wylie, they have time and again protected our rights. Now that we have transcended ourselves into surveillance capitalism, we need more them in business sector. But what if we have AI as whistleblower? It seems to be a win-win situation, as the accountability will be established without exposing whistleblower to harms.
To discuss legal challenges with respect to this unexplored topic, we are sending you this e-mail to invite you in our next webinar, which will be held on December 19th, 2020 at 6:00 PM IST.
