"Open Rights Group has published its six priorities for digital rights that the next UK government should focus on," reports Ben Werdmuller. In this short post he highlights the third priority, which warns against the use of predictive policing. The other priorities include: secure messaging, digital sanctuary for refugees, freedom of expression online, data protection rights, and protection against tracking. It's interesting to me to compare the newfound interest in digital rights and ethics with what I produced in 1999 as the Cyberspace Carter of Rights (today as relevant as it ever was).
