Surveillance capitalism and the datafication of Finnish public health infrastructure

Surveillance capitalism and the datafication of Finnish public health infrastructure

Matti KortesojaPer Albin

The presentation is designed to examine surveillance capitalism in the context of social and health care reform entering force in Finland in 2023. The ideology-critical analysis of policy reforms coheres around datafication of public health infrastructure to grasp surveillance capitalism in the Nordic context, thus highlighting facets different from those prominent in works targeting oft-considered Google and Facebook.
