Near Future Tech with Jason Griffey
Tuesday March 13, 2018: 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room, Downtown Library: Secret Lab
Join Jason Griffey for a discussion on the complexity and uncharted nature of “near future tech,” and the privacy implications as we enter a time where even our home appliances promise to be connected to the internet. As we move into a world in which the devices we depend on constantly listen in order to help us, what are the privacy concerns? How will we navigate the boundaries between efficiency and privacy, and are the two mutually exclusive? Will Skynet finally happen when AI and robots become part of our daily lives?
Jason Griffey is a librarian, technologist, consultant, writer and speaker and a Fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University where he studies decentralization, access to information, intellectual property, and more.
