Cyrus Farivar will discuss his latest book Habeas Data: Privacy Vs. the Rise of Surveillance Tech. Cyrus Farivar is an award-winning Senior Tech Policy Reporter at Ars Technica, author, and radio producer. His recent book, Habeas Data, shows how the explosive growth of surveillance technology has outpaced our understanding of the ethics, mores, and laws of privacy. He makes the case by taking ten historic court decisions that defined our privacy rights and matching them against the capabilities of modern technology. It’s an approach that combines the charge of a legal thriller with the shock of the daily headlines.
