Torsdag 31 oktober, 2019kl. 08:00 - 10:00
Humlab, Campus Umeå
Digital technology is often said to provide us with enhanced freedom and an easier way of living, with an almost unlimited access to culture, tutorials, social contacts and more. However, as we use these online services our digital foot prints are sold and bought on the market. Using this data, and other digital tools for monitoring, governments, organizations, companies – and individuals – are also said to create a comprehensive surveillance culture. Hence, the flows of data and tools for monitoring raise new and old questions of security, privacy and control.
Welcome to join us for tech breakfast and to discuss some important texts about this development.
