Co-sponsored by ISTS and the Computer Science Colloquium

Abstract

Edward Felten
Edward Felten

Edward Felten presents the first talk in the speaker series "Surveillance in the Age of Big Data", co-sponsored by ISTS and the Computer Science Colloquium.  

The National Security Agency is collecting data about a substantial fraction of all domestic phone calls. This talk will examine several technical tradeoffs surrounding the phone data program. How effective is such a program likely to be in identifying potential terrorists or clearing up false suspicion? How easily can enemies evade the program? Can the program be redesigned to better protect privacy, without losing effectiveness? In general, can intelligence agencies carry out their analysis and data processes in a way that better protects the privacy of innocent people?

Bio
