Always On: The Digital Consumer

30 October 2014 from 8am to 10:30am

Welcome to the age of the Internet of Things. Devices in our homes are connected to the Internet, our cars are starting to talk to each other wirelessly, and we are attaching mobile-enabled devices to our wrists to measure fitness. Awesome or scary? Most likely, a bit of both.

The Center for Democracy & Technology, and our co-host TRUSTe, invite you to "Always On: The Digital Consumer." Always On will take a deep dive into the personal, policy, and privacy implications of being always connected — and having everything around you connected as well. We’ll explore how to realize the full potential of the Internet of Things, while maintaining our sense of self and control of our personal data.

This is CDT’s third installment of Always On, and we’re delighted to be co-hosting with TRUSTe to bring this series to the Bay Area for the first time. Each event features a fire-starter, whose brief speech is followed by small group discussions. Each event concludes with an expert panel informed by group feedback. Always On events serve as catalysts for future CDT programs, projects, and research.
