The Promise and Perils of Data

How data will shape the future of everything from health to driving. Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones.

How data will shape everything from health to driving. We talk to Dr Julia Powles from the Faculty of Law and Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, and to Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google's DeepMind AI company, about using data in healthcare. Plus we hear why insurers want data from the driverless cars of the future. And Dave Lee reports from a town in the United States where using WiFi and even cellphones is forbidden. Presented by BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones, with Chris Foxx from the BBC Online tech desk, and special guest Stephanie Hare, tech strategist at the data science firm Palantir.
