Tristan Harris’  is a former Design Ethicist at Google. He became a world expert on ethical issues in Technology
and founded Time Well Spent, an NGO raising awareness on digital addictions, in 2013.

The statement he made in May at VivaTech created some debate in the Tech & Media industry:

Thibault d’Orso, co-founder of Spideo, decided to write a white paper on this topic.  He ran an experiment with

whitepaper explores their findings and solutions to the personalization problem.

In other words, a personalized recommendation system requiring a lot of data with no room left for serendipity. In this context, the data craftsmen have a role to play. Who are they, and why should we prefer this term instead of the over-used term “data scientist”? How is data craftsmanship the key to escape the hazardous echo chambers?”
