In an age where we can collect and store (forEVER) every second of every day, how much do we truly need… to learn? To react? To do good deeds that benefit society?

Dawn Nafus has definitive insights about those very questions, particularly when it comes to data design and artificial intelligence.
A renowned anthropologist and research scientist who studies the intersection of society and technology, Dawn sat down with TechDecoded to discuss the increasing importance—even the imperative—of incorporating social/societal dynamics into system design.
