A Deeper Dive: Privacy in a Digital Age

A three-part course co-sponsored by the Linda Hall Library and the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering

This series will focus on Internet privacy: Is there a natural right to privacy? What are we talking about when we talk about privacy? And how do new technologies lead to new challenges? We’ll examine data mining, facial recognition, the commodification of data, surveillance as a business model, and what the individual can do.

  • August 5: Definitions of Privacy (And Why Digital is Different and Anonymity is Hard) 
  • August 12: Surveillance as a Business Model: It’s Not “What Do They Know;” It’s “What Don’t They Know.”  
  • August 19: Protecting Digital Privacy—What Can Be Done; Trends; and Future Directions
