We talk to the people that are driving the Modern Data revolution and hear their stories. Hear stories about Data Science, Ethics, Privacy, Innovation, Cool Technology, and more.

We interview innovators, big thinkers, and provocateurs. We want to meet the humans behind the data, who can help us understand the impact data on human experience and our world. That way we turn this from stories about widgets and gimmicks, and into human stories about the value of data - and also the dangers of misusing it.

    Doctors need data too (Guest: Dave Albert)

    In this episode, we talk to Dave Albert, CTO, and Co-Founder of Medit and the host of the CTO and Cofounder Talk podcast.

That, of course, raises some of the same bias and privacy challenges we see at other places today on the Internet, and Dave and his team take that seriously.
