Cloud computing is the future and the global digital migration to the cloud has been accelerated by moves to remote work caused by the ongoing pandemic. Both private companies, like Uber, Grab, and Go Jek, and public entities, like Singapore’s government, all use cloud technology. What does this transition mean for how companies, governments, and individuals operate in the world, manage their data, and protect their privacy? This seminar explores the logistical, practical, and ethical effects of this movement. How can the cloud aid in the effort to contact trace and contain the COVID-19 pandemic? What are the ethical implications of cloud migration on society- and what are the different practical effects this could have on our day to day lives?
