Big Privacy – A CITP Conference
Date and Time
Friday, April 26, 2013 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Friend Center Convocation Room
Privacy is currently undergoing a phase transition as digital technologies collect, combine, and reveal deeply personal information about us at any unprecedented scale. This conference will bring together experts in computer science and public policy to examine three key questions that define the new era of “big privacy”— aggregate big-data style analytics applied to private data. This shift alters our understanding of what constitutes personal information. It raises new questions as monitoring expands from our computers to our everyday activities in the physical world. It calls for new approaches to measuring the collection and use of data, and the implications of inferences made from data. Academics, policymakers, and practitioners will convene in Princeton to discuss these challenges.
