Would you pay to wear an ankle monitor? How about a Fitbit?
Please join the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program for an AI Cyber Lunch Seminar featuring Chris Gilliard, Professor of English at Macomb Community College. In a talk entitled "Luxury Surveillance," Gilliard will discuss the proliferation of devices that people pay for and whose tracking, monitoring, and quantification features are understood by the user as benefits - as well as how those devices can and are being leveraged against people by their employers, the government, their neighbors, stalkers, and domestic abusers.
Q&A to follow. Buffet-style lunch will be served.
