Sophia Bush is many things; an actress, activist, and avid reader. She hosts a new podcast called Work in Progress and is working on several soon-to-be-released films. She is an LA native and, as the daughter of two immigrant parents, understands the value of the American Dream and the value of the life she’s built for herself.
But what many might not know is that Sophia is also a self-proclaimed “data science nerd” and narrator of our newest tech podcast, Hidden In Plain Sight.
“There's been so much ballooning innovation in the space and because so many of us don't have the touchpoints to it that some of these bigger tech companies do, we've seen a lot of the negative usages of data mining and of data science happen in the world recently,” says Sophia.
“It's incredibly important that we as a citizenry have more transparency into these systems. Because the inverse of something like a Cambridge Analytica is the incredible, life-changing, life-saving, humanity-bolstering tech that's being created right now."
This behind-the-scenes episode of Mission Daily was recorded with Sophia right after she completed season one of Hidden In Plain Sight. Chad and Stephanie join her in-studio to discuss the show, what’s she’s been up to, and her tips for time management and self-care.
