In the second part of this extended interview with Real Media, Professor Bev Skeggs speaks about surveillance capitalism. With the fast roll-out of “pre-emptive surveillance” gadgets, the internet of things, and wearable tech, we are entering an age where huge non-transparent corporations, paying little or no tax, are supplying information to employers and insurance companies to control, monetise and rate every action we take. Regulation so far has failed to foresee any of this, and we need to start waking up to what is happening and making democratic choices to reign it in.
