Ronald Deibert, These Are the Sensors in My Neighbourhood (Ethics in the City Series)

Science|Ethics|Tech, Ethics in the City

As almost everyone knows by now, we share a lot of highly-revealing and sensitive data with companies. But what those companies do with that data, whether they share it or not with third parties, and just how much of it they collect and retain, is still largely a mystery. Drawing from Citizen Lab reports, in my talk I will review the exploding universe of “big data” collection, the accumulating fine-grained sensors that facilitate it, and the public policy, security, and privacy issues that accompany it.
