Newly-emerging technologies affect us all in a multitude of ways and today’s turned-on, always-connected world has reached an all-time high. O’Connor, president of the Center for Democracy & Technology, will discuss how the internet and interconnected world shape our lives, impact our civil liberties, and inform our daily decisions. Other panelists include Ryan Calo, faculty director of the University of Washington’s Tech Policy Lab; Racquel Russell, Director of Government Relations and Public Affairs for Zillow; and Matt Wood, the General Manager of Product Strategy for Amazon Web Services. From the Internet of Things to the wireless technologies in automobiles, the panelists will explain the range of this digital world and what steps can be made to stay plugged in, while still maintaining personal privacy and security. The panel will be moderated by Jenny Durkan, former United States Attorney and Quinn Emanuel’s Global Chair of the Cyber Law and Privacy Group. Ira Rubinstein, CDT Board of Directors, Research Fellow and Adjunct Professor at NYU School of Law will be giving a special welcome to the program.
