Abstract

Data conveys noteworthy social, economic, and political power and so unequal control over data is a problem for economic development, human agency, and collective self-determination that must be tackled. AI and big data are driving economic development and social change. AI is a tool of capitalism which alters societies within an environment of technological singularity promoting the expansion of the digital model of economic development. Algorithmic decision-making has to be legitimized as a decisional system. Governing algorithmic decision-making should embrace both individual rights and systemic approaches. Tackling concerns that predictive AI tools are contributing to inequality necessitate broader legal reforms that strengthen employee voice in the workplace. Political effectiveness is increasing as the real information to make intelligent political choice becomes pervasive in society and so greater belief in political effectiveness leads to augmented political participation which means that social networking via AI is a plus in favor of better democracy. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulates the processing by an individual, a corporation, or an organization of personal data concerning individuals in the European Union. The borderless character of cyberspace and e-commerce gives the GDPR a wider reach and so this new regulation applies to any processor of EU-citizen data generating vital international inferences, as it regulates many large firms operating and headquartered outside of the EU territories.
