Reminder Subject: TALK: Future of Data: Law, Technology and Policy

A confluence of powerful data analytics, artificial intelligence, and global information platforms together with changing social attitudes about personal data are transforming both the policy and technology landscape. In this environment, data is a core strategic asset for a wide range of enterprises, and firms must increasingly navigate regulatory requirements, ethical best data practices, and the limitations of today’s data management platforms. We believe that there is an opportunity to help inform global discussions on these topics in a way that is both technologically informed and policy aware.

The MIT Future of Data, Trust, and Privacy initiative, developed by CSAIL and the MIT Internet Policy Research Initiative (IPRI), aims to bring state-of-the-art MIT computer science research together with world-leading public policy expertise and engagement in order to achieve key goals, such as:

-Drafting new policy-informed, technical approaches to today’s privacy, cybersecurity, and data challenges

-Measuring cyber risk with the innovative SCRAM platform

-Leading a global dialogue with policymakers, civil society, and industry leaders as we help shape the future of privacy and data governance

-Developing new educational opportunities related to data governance technology and public policy

During this event, attendees will learn about the current goals and challenges in the privacy, policy, technology and cybersecurity landscape; new research in these areas; and how the initiative fits in. Attendees will be able to ask any questions they have about the Future of Data, Trust, and Privacy Initiative to the research leads.

Submit your questions for the Q&A Discussion session on the registration form.
