Responsible innovation: A cross-disciplinary lens on privacy and security challenges


How do you interact and socialize? How do you conduct business? How do you raise your kids and care for the elderly? All these basic activities are being directly impacted by new technologies that are emerging at an incredible rate. While each new technology brings its own benefits and risks, regulations struggle to catch up.

What does it mean to innovate responsibly, particularly with respect to privacy and security?   Join us for a presentation and panel discussion with Professors Kohno, Friedman and Calo, co-directors of the UW Tech Policy Lab. With expertise from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, the Information School and the School of Law, this group is uniquely positioned to address these issues.

When:   Tues. Nov. 3, 2015; 7:30 p.m.
Where:   Kane Hall, Room 130 
4069 Spokane Lane
Seattle, WA 98105 
Cost:   Free, but advance registration is required.

Tadayoshi Kohno is the Short-Dooley Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington and an adjunct associate professor in the UW Information School. He is a co-director of the UW Tech Policy Lab and a member of the UW CSE Security and Privacy Research Lab, the National Academies Forum on Cyber Resilience, the IEEE Center for Secure Design and the USENIX Security Steering Committee. His research focuses on computer security and privacy for emerging and consumer technologies, computer security and privacy for mobile and cloud systems, the human element in computer security systems and computer security education.

Batya Friedman is a professor in the Information School, adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science, and adjunct professor in the Department of Human-Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington. She is a co-director of the UW Tech Policy Lab. At the UW, Professor Friedman directs the Value Sensitive Design Research Lab. Professor Friedman pioneered value sensitive design (VSD), an approach to account for human values in the design of information systems. First developed in human-computer interaction, VSD has since been used in information management, human-robotic interaction, computer security, civil engineering, applied philosophy and land use and transportation. 

Ryan Calo is assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Law and assistant professor (by courtesy) at the Information School. He is a co-director of the UW Tech Policy Lab. Professor Calo's research on law and emerging technology appears or is forthcoming in leading law reviews (California Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, Stanford Law Review Online, University of Pennsylvania Law Review Online) and technical publications (MIT Press, IEEE, Science, Artificial Intelligence), and is frequently referenced by the mainstream media (NPR, New York Times, Wall Street Journal). 

From online shopping and “smart” devices to driverless cars and personal robots, technology continues to improve our lives in extraordinary ways. These same technologies leave a trail sharing who we are, where we go and what we consume. Robots to Web Trackers: Privacy in the Age of Smart Technology examines the opportunities and hazards of our ever-more connected modern world. See all lectures.
