A data ethics of power is ultimately concerned with the role of the human as an ethical being with a corresponding ethical responsibility for not only the human living being but also for life and being in general. In chapter 5 the philosophical underpinnings of a data ethics of powers are explicated through lens of the French philosopher Henri Bergson writings on time and morality. In particular, the human approach of a data ethics of power is explored as a guiding narrative for the governance of AISTIs and BDSTIs that prioritises the human environment, human ethical agency and responsibility. We also explore how human critical ethical agency does not flourish in the cracks of the BDSTIs’ and AISTIs’ sociotechnical structures of power. This is why we urgently need to act to preserve the human critical cultural moments and to create the conditions that will enable critical spaces of negotiation.
