Transcript of Privacy in the Future (Short)

Why Privacy?
The Cloud
Robots from
the Future

A watched populace never boils
Only apes demand privacy
Anonymous communication is at the foundation of free societies
Privacy is what you take away from someone when you want to torture them
-Earl of Spencer
Look in a big sea of data and you'll find what you are looking for
-even if it isn't really there

Scientists fail and this sometimes, the public and juries all the time
People don't care about privacy until after an invasion -- they will trade it for a chance at an iPod
You must protect other's privacy
We must not walk on the edge of the police state
Why be a privacy zealot?
Shy people need privacy too

In a way extroverts can't understand
Apps in the cloud:
Roaming, scaling
What does it look like?
to Personal Computing
to Timesharing

Moving data out of your hands
We must think before doing something this dramatic with our software
A question of policy,
or a question of...
Scalability is the key
Surveillance didn't use to scale
Now AI takes it further...
Time-traveling robots
from the future
Understanding natural language in bulk
Face and person recognition
Speech recognition
Facial expressions
and body language
Patterns of network
This leads to...
“Are you now or have you ever been...”
Long web form was impediment
Negotiation requires parties with power
Ease of Use is a Bug
We should ask ourselves with each step, did we want to change the balance?
The balance is changing
Don’t be big brother’s “preferred vendor.”
Tech Gets Used in Other Countries
Consider privacy invasive uses of what we design today
Consider its use in other regimes and future regimes
Be a bit paranoid, even with things you don't think you have to protect -- yet.
What to do?
Is privacy dead? Should we just “get over it?”
How does your sense of privacy differ from your parents and your children?
What will convince software designers to put in privacy by design?
What will the A.I. of the future do that scares you?
