Could we stop those big data breaches that lose everyone's personal information? What will the Internet of Things mean for your privacy? How about facial recognition? This talk summarizes the challenges of privacy in our digital age. I'll give brief overviews of many different digital technologies. Along the way, I'll offer solutions that bridge the divide between the digitalization of our everyday lives and our human need for privacy. Ultimately this talk goes beyond technology to address the larger questions of how we can preserve privacy in a digital world.
