In Episode 141 of “The Data Diva” Talks Privacy Podcast, Debbie Reynolds talks to Craig Hamill, Director of Innovation and Technology at UL Research Institutes. We discuss digital safety, which is an extension of social media, and his work in creating standards and guidelines to ensure that technology is used responsibly. He is also working on building the lab of the future and driving innovation to create a better world. We discuss the potential issues of digital safety, privacy, and transparency that come with the development of AI and ML tools, such as Generative AI models, deep fakes, and Quantum Computing. He highlights the need for standards and safety to protect people from exploitation and misinformation. People are increasingly looking to trust companies and brands with their data in exchange for services and products, but transparency is key in order to ensure that the data is not being misused or sold to third parties. Companies should also provide the option for people to delete their data if they are not comfortable with it being used. We discuss the importance of transparency and accountability when it comes to data and technology, as well as the need for fact-checking and proofreading. We also discuss the implications of taking information at face value, the need for digital safety, and his hope for Data Privacy in the future.

I’ve had fairly busy over at LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/craighamill/) with the happenings at UL Research Institutes and upcoming engagements. I have some exciting news to share soon.
There’s a lot happening right now, and I wanted to share a select bit with you. I’m currently working as the Director of Innovation and Technology for UL Research Institutes. In this role, I am responsible for the development and execution of the ‘Lab of the Future’ project, which is focused on leveraging cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and extended reality (XR) to transform the way we approach research and innovation. Our goal is to create a state-of-the-art laboratory that serves as a model for the future of scientific inquiry and discovery.
In addition to this, I am working on building a studio and Immersion Lab at the Illinois Science and Technology Park (ISTP) in Skokie, IL. This lab will allow researchers and scientists to conduct experiments and simulations in an immersive environment using XR technology. Our hope is that this lab will accelerate the pace of innovation in various fields by enabling scientists to visualize and understand complex data in new ways. I’m incredibly excited to be working on this project, and I can’t wait to see the impact it will have on the world.
