Privacy Law/Big Data: Do We Have the Rights We Need

Government and business are “all in” with Big Data. It promises to make government more effective and just, while making businesses more efficient and profitable. “Big Data” Analytics and the Artificial Intelligence they rely on have spawned new concerns about privacy and discrimination. This seminar will describe the roots of privacy law in the U.S., and assess the adequacy of existing law in light of the emergence of communications and digital technologies.  Has big data leapt ahead of the law, leaving vulnerable groups at risk for greater government surveillance, negative profiling and marketplace discrimination?
