Full course description
Privacy Challenges for Big Tech in a Digitized World. New technologies have created a tidal wave of data that, depending on how they are collected and analyzed, could deliver important societal benefits, or pose critical risks to privacy. Such data could be essential for protecting national security and public health, developing innovative products and services, and generating breakthroughs in scientific research. At the same time, they could reveal more personal information about our private lives than at any time in history. The private sector is moving forward quickly to develop and deploy new technologies, while legal frameworks lag behind and develop in different and potentially inconsistent directions around the world. This seminar will explore the regulatory and oversight structures that countries are putting in place to ensure that society realizes technology’s promise while managing its privacy risks.
