Justice by Design: How Emerging Technologies, Privacy, and Social Justice Collide
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 10:00-11:00am PDT
Zoom Link - Presenter: K Royal, Associate General Counsel, TrustArc

Emerging technologies or established technologies being used for new purposes often focus on the problem being addressed and not the problems that may be created. Technology rarely focuses on justice. This session will discuss some of the social injustices we have seen with the use of technology, associated privacy concerns, and ethics to consider.
