Data Dilemmas: The Past, Present, and Future of our Privacy
Thursday, October 6, 2022, 5:00 p.m. CT
Central Library Community Room

Every day, we shed more and more information about ourselves in exchange for services, offered by an ever-growing number of organizations, both public and private. How are the uses of our personal information by corporations, hospitals, governments and more creating the potential for new social benefits, but also new risks and vulnerabilities? Join Vanderbilt faculty members from different fields — history, medicine, law, and computing — to discuss the implications of evolving data landscapes for individual privacy and public welfare.
