Event Details

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

The failure of anonymisation has led to a narrative in the debate over privacy and open data that sometimes pits these two values against each other, as though privacy and openness are inherently in conflict. In this talk, Woodrow Hartzog will argue that in order to reconcile this perceived tension, we must better define the notions of both ‘open data’ and ‘privacy in datasets’ in our law and policy to accommodate reasonable risk management techniques. 

About the speaker

Woodrow Hartzog is an Associate Professor at the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and an Affiliate Scholar at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School. His research on privacy, media and robotics has been published in numerous law reviews and peer-reviewed publications such as the Columbia Law Review, California Law Review and Michigan Law Review, as well as popular publications such as the Guardian, Wired, The Atlantic, CNN and BBC. His book, Privacy’s Blueprint: The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies, is under contract with Harvard University Press.
