Whistleblower, activist, and Senate candidate Chelsea Manning spoke extensively at SXSW about the dangers of unchecked data collection and misplaced trust in algorithms. Manning called for an ethical framework that would govern software development. “Like doctors have a code of ethics, software developers should have a code of ethics.”Part of the problem, Manning said, was the collection of huge amounts of information that can be repurposed over time.
