March 6, 2014 - 10:30am
Berkeley, CA

Advances in drone aircraft, networked cameras, and recent disclosures about the NSA’s international and domestic surveillance activities have stimulated public protests, outrage from activists, and new policy discussions among elected leaders. This symposium will highlight emerging perspectives on visual privacy and consider the state of the art from a variety of disciplines and professions, including technology, journalism, filmmaking and the arts. EFF staff attorney Jennifer Lynch will be on a panel about the policy and technology of visual surveillance.
