Ideas to Action:

Yuen Yuen Ang is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan and a member of CGD's Technology and Comparative Advantage Study Group. In this episode of Sounds Robotic, we discuss how you can make your data more meaningful, the dangers of big data in cases of oppression, and whether political freedom is really a requirement for technological development. This is a joint episode with the main CGD Podcast, hosted by Holly Shulman—more about that here!
