Poster for Data for Good presentation info


The University of Ottawa Centre for Law, Technology and Society presents:

As the capacity of information technology grows exponentially, offering unprecedented potential for data collection, mining and analytics, where do we draw the line between the data that should remain protected by the right to privacy and that which could be accessed in the interest of science, public policy, law enforcement or digital equality? We will discuss this new tension and the pressure it puts on established concepts.
