Stephanie Hare

Dr Stephanie Hare


Dr Stephanie Hare is a researcher, broadcaster, and expert speaker on technology, politics and history. Stephanie’s most recent work includes research on how biometrics, surveillance, and big data affect our civil liberties and human rights.

Selected as a part of the landmark BBC Expert Women initiative, she has a regular radio column that goes out on the BBC World Service’s World Business Report and BBC Radio’s 4 Business Daily. She has published op-eds with the Financial Times, Project Syndicate, CNN, and The Guardian. In 2019 Stephanie has appeared on BBC television on subjects as diverse as Can We Trust Huawei?, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Requests Internet Regulation, and The New Zealand Massacre: The Technical Challenges of Removing Videos from Social Media. Stephanie is a leading specialist on the business, political, and social implications of facial recognition technology, surveillance, and of 5G mobile communications including the development of smart cities.

In Summer 2020 Stephanie will publish Technology Ethics, addressing a whole spectrum of complex contradictory values created by the new technologies of the twenty-first century. She examines the future in artificial intelligence, biometrics, big data, data protection, and children’s data. Drawing on Stephanie’s experience as a technologist, a political risk analyst and as an historian the book will offer a cross-disciplinary approach challenging those creating, investing in, regulating and reporting on, technology. It will examine the space where biometrics and big data meet commercial and government AI capabilities, the ethics of data use, the role of regulation and international law in securing privacy and the rights of the individual.

Stephanie’s other academic publications include For Your Eyes Only: US Technology Companies, Sovereign States and the Battle for Data Protection, selected as a case study for Harvard Business Review; and book chapters such as The Duty to Obey: Politics and the Individual in France 1930-1950, based on her exclusive interviews with Maurice Papon, the French civil servant convicted of crimes against humanity in 1998 relating to his role in the arrest, internment and deportation of Jewish people during the Second World War.

Stephanie has worked as a Principal Director at Accenture Research, as a deployment strategist at Palantir, a Senior Analyst for Western Europe at Oxford Analytica, a consultant at Accenture, and has taught history at Oxford, where she held the Alistair Horne Visiting Fellowship at St Antony’s College. She is a graduate of the London School of Economics (PhD, MSc) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

As at mid-to-late 2020 Stephanie is researching on and writing on the UK Government’s test and trace Covid-19 policy and apps, efficacy and security.
