Privacy’s Blueprint: The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies

1401 K Street NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20005

May 7 , 2018

Join the Center for Democracy & Technology for a conversation about design and technology with Northeastern University Professor of Law and Computer Science Woodrow Hartzog, who will introduce his new book, Privacy’s Blueprint: The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies.

In the book, Hartzog makes the case that the design of technology is not value-neutral, and that the law can and should require software and hardware makers to respect privacy in the design of their products. In that light, how can technology — from social media platforms to smart home devices — enhance or undermine privacy and security? How can law and policy incentivize good design?

Hartzog’s talk will be followed by a panel discussion on human- and privacy-centric design.

The program will begin promptly at 5 PM and be followed by a short reception.

Books will be available for sale both online and at the event.

Featuring:

Woodrow Hartzog, Professor of Law and Computer Science, Northeastern University

Michelle Mazurek, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Maryland

Terrell McSweeny, Former Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission

Moderator:

Michelle De Mooy, Director, Privacy & Data Project, Center for Democracy & Technology
