In 2018, data scientist Christopher Wylie released a cache of documents that revealed the illegal practice of harvesting data to target certain people and influence political opinion. He witnessed firsthand how culture, information and algorithms were being weaponized by militaries, governments and companies to undermine elections around the world.
