Can the Law Protect Privacy from Technology?

Vivek Krishnamurthy
Clinical Instructor in Harvard Law School's Cyberlaw Clinic

Talk of online privacy is now in the news like never before. The recent revelation of how Cambridge Analytica obtained over 80 million Facebook profiles raises tough questions not just about the security of our private data, but its use to predict and even manipulate our behavior.

Join Vivek Krishnamurthy for a presentation of how emerging technological trends -- from artificial intelligence to the internet things -- pose an ever-increasing threat to our privacy and autonomy, and a discussion of what (if anything) the law can do about it.
