Data as labour

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:15 pm on 7 February 2018

The relationship between internet users and internet companies is not one-sided.

We provide the companies with data they need to create better programmes. And as artificial intelligence use increases so too does the amount of data they need. And that can only be provided by internet users like you and me.
