Listen to Unpacking Surveillance and Intrusive Tech35:4928 April 2021

The team catch up with data scientist, entrepreneur, and director of Women Who Code, Akanksha Malik to talk about her career path, and her new podcast 'Paths Uncovered'; and Dr. Xin Gu, Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies at Monash University, speaks about the social, legal, technological and health implications of living in a world where intrusive technologies such as facial recognition and surveillance are becoming the norm. The team also explore a new study by the Gonski Institute of Education, which says that 4 out of 5 Australian school kids own at least one device, and how more than 9 out of 10 parents think devices are impacted negatively on their own lives, not just their children’s. With presenters Vanessa Toholka, Dan Salmon, and Rowena Murray.
