On 25th May the Office of the Data Protection Authority (ODPA) will release the 2023 Bijou Lecture featuring University of Oxford’s Institute for Ethics in AI senior research associate Elizabeth M. Renieris – an expert on data governance and the human rights implications of new and emerging technologies.

⭐ About Elizabeth M. Renieris ⭐
The author of ‘Beyond Data: Reclaiming Human Rights at the Dawn of the Metaverse’, her passion for data protection was ignited at university when a classmate hacked into internal residential house directories, scraped the student ID photos of female residents from their pages and pitted the undergraduate women against each other on a website called Facemash. The classmate was Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

❓ Elizabeth’s lecture will be followed by a Q and A, so if you have any burning questions for her please email communications@odpa.gg by Thursday 11th May.

💎 About Project Bijou
Project Bijou encourages everyone to share stories, knowledge and experiences related to ethical data use, in a way that benefits everyone. Its aim is to support and nurture positive cultural change around how people and organisations treat people’s data. It seeks to engage people on a cultural level rather than simply on a legal/compliance one.

The lecture will be available to watch online at www.odpa.gg/bijou from 25th May onwards.
