We have started the second session of the 2017/2018 DSIDE program. Our team at CSIR Modelling and Digital Science takes about 18 our of the 50 students on the program yearly. On the 8th of December we hosted Tefo Mohapi (Tech Journalist and Owner of iAfrikan).
Tefo talked a bit about his work and it's relations to data. The Q&A session was free flowing with questions on ethics of data, challenges with privacy and POPI. What became apparent was the general lack of public knowledge of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act.
I want to express a lot of gratitude to Tefo for availing himself for the session.
