“Data do not stand in linear deterministic relationship to the things
represented in them.”

In her lecture ‘Power of Data”, Dr. Monika Halkort discussed three main questions: How can we live well with data?, what kind of obligations exist towards our data?, and how can we ensure these ethical obligations are met?
