The UK’s DCMS Parliamentary Select Committee Fake News Inquiry chaired by Damian Collins MP again published important evidence from me this week.
The evidence examines how the #CambridgeAnalytica model was copied by #leave.eu in a dual strategy deployed to aid #eldoninsurance and illustrates how they were extending this work in the US Rust Belt states – and in the process there is a possibility they were grossly misusing UK voters data to develop #AI at a new Center at Ole Miss in order to make big profits in the US insurance industry. It was published ahead of my testimony in an important Mississippi court case on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th June. You can see my written statement and the accompanying audio/transcript here.
My testimony went very well and hopefully made a big difference to the hearing in Mississippi – the Fair Vote Project v Eldon Insurance and Big Data Dolphins. The briefs are now due on Tuesday 12th June and then the court will decide the case. It is a deeply important case to ensure the ability to investigate whether UK voters’ data was moved to Mississippi. Here is a photo of us all after the hearing!
