“The US Congress is currently considering whether to pass a bill to create a Data Protection Act which would set up a federal data protection agency.
The bill, introduced last month, spells out how the agency would enforce data protection and privacy rights, putting Americans in control of their own data. But what exactly does that mean? And how would a bill with the sole goal of protecting individuals’ data effect the tech, financial and healthcare industries?
We spoke to Mike Capps, former Epic Games president and current co-founder and CEO of responsible AI startup Diveplane, for his unique perspective as someone with a past in the consumer (and data-heavy) industry of video games, as well as having a future in changing how we use and protect our data through ethical AI applications.”
