Joe Toscano's 2024 biography

Meet Joe Toscano

Joe Toscano is an award-winning designer, published author, and international keynote speaker and featured regularly on Fox News as a technology expert, along with other major media outlets. You may have seen Joe featured in The Social Dilemma or read his articles on Forbes. Watch his TEDx Talk, “Want to work for Google? You already do,” for a summary of his work.

Previously an Experience Design consultant for Google, Joe left Silicon Valley because he believes the industry misuses data and feels the issues need to be addressed through innovation rather than strict regulation. Since leaving, Joe has written a book, called Automating Humanity, and he has started the Better Ethics and Consumer Outcomes Network (BEACON), both focused on increasing technology literacy, discovering opportunities for purpose-driven innovation, and moving communities forward through purpose-driven innovation.

Joe’s talks focus on how we can create a better, human-centered approach to designing the internet. His deepest knowledge is in privacy, data protection, digital literacy, and the larger conversation around data rights as human rights.

Joe Toscano's 2024 talks & topics

Invisible Threads: Data Privacy in an AI Era

In an era where personal data flows ceaselessly through the labyrinth of the internet, preserving privacy has become an unprecedented challenge. Through vivid anecdotes and real-world examples, this talk will unravel the intricate connections that link individuals, platforms, advertisers, and more, exposing the ecosystem that sustains our online interactions and drives business value. By understanding the risk and value embedded within these invisible threads, businesses can derive the optimum value from their data while actively contributing to a digital landscape where privacy is respected.

Key points:

  • Understanding the Ecosystem: Highlight the intricate interconnections that weave through the digital realm, connecting individuals, platforms, and businesses in a complex web of data exchange.
  • Data as the Currency of the Digital Age: In the modern digital landscape, data is akin to currency. Just as money can be misused, mishandled, or stolen, data can be similarly exploited, emphasizing the critical need to treat it with the same level of vigilance and protection as any other valuable asset.
  • Deriving Business Value While Protecting Privacy: Shed light on how businesses derive value from data while emphasizing the importance of responsible data utilization and privacy preservation for sustainable growth and ethical practice.

Creating Human-Centric Businesses in the Era of Artificial Intelligence

In an era where technological advancements are rapidly reshaping the business landscape, the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become increasingly pivotal. However, amidst the race for automation and efficiency, workers are growing increasingly concerned about the stability of their jobs. How can we strike a balance between leveraging the power of AI and prioritizing the well-being and potential of our workforce? How can businesses harness AI to create a more efficient yet people-centric environment? By redefining the narrative surrounding AI integration, businesses can effectively harness its power to not only optimize processes but also nurture a thriving and motivated workforce.

Key points:

  • Invest in People to Optimize AI Investments: By enabling access to personalized learning and development opportunities, businesses can utilize AI to nurture the potential of their workforce, leading to increased job satisfaction and retention.
  • Create a Superhuman Workforce: By understanding the complementary roles of AI and human intelligence, businesses can foster an environment where employees can focus on creative and strategic tasks, while AI handles the repetitive and mundane aspects of their roles.
  • Cultivate a Culture of Adaptability: AI can serve as a catalyst for organizational growth and agility, while ensuring that employees feel valued and supported.

Privacy 2.0: A Post-Compliance Era of Profitable Privacy Practices

Laws are created when an individual or group of individuals become too callous to their moral obligations to society. However, laws are not required to regulate or change the world, and even when regulated it’s been proven that companies will do everything they can to get around the law. This talk will lay out the many ways in which privacy and data protection can be translated into a value center, rather than a compliance cost center, through the lense of ESG. Leveraged to increase revenues and profitability, we enable privacy to remove itself from a cost in the mind of executives and put professionals in a position to accelerate the rate of change exponentially.

Empathetic Privacy: Situational Awareness Training for Data Professionals

Tech regulation is consuming the world, and in the process it’s forcing companies to ask new questions of themselves: How does your company handle your data? Is your company asking the right questions of itself? Are you prepared or are you unsure? Keeping up with these new regulations and trying to stay ahead of the curve is costing companies excessive amounts of both time and money.

Empathetic Privacy is zero to one data literacy and ethics training for data professionals. It is the creative work required to ensure society retains the humanity of its machine counterparts and consensually adopts them.
