Data Rights Foundations

via LinkedIn Learning


Learn what rights you have to your own data—and what responsibilities businesses and institutions have to protect and respect those rights.

The main driver of the technological revolution isn’t artificial intelligence or machine learning. It’s data: data about people like us. So what rights do you have to your own data? What responsibilities do businesses and other institutions have in protecting and respecting those rights? This course helps everyone from laypersons to data science and business professionals understand and move forward in one of the most important issues of our time: In a world driven by data, who owns this valuable resource? Analyst Martin Kemka, a specialist in machine learning and applied AI, helps you understand your rights and how to protect them. He also helps those who work with data understand their responsibilities, including the global policies guiding AI research and applications.
