Today, your personal data is constantly collected and processed, whether you're accessing a service, searching online for information, or purchasing a product. Web browsers, loyalty/credit cards, and mobile applications all record vast amounts of personal data.
AI-powered algorithms transform this data into intelligence about the behavior of individuals. Until now it has mainly been benefitting commercial purposes. However, it could be put to better use by being donated to research projects and academic studies which support good causes and improve people’s lives.
