CSCI 1951F - Computers, Freedom and Privacy: Current Topics in Law and Policy
Who is the Big Brother that we most fear? Is it the NSA -- or is it Google and Facebook? Rapidly changing social mores and the growing problem of cybersecurity have all contributed to a sense that privacy is dead. While the laws that protect privacy and civil liberties are stuck in the analog age, the capabilities for mass digital surveillance continue to advance rapidly. This course will put current controversies in historical context and explore possible reforms. WRIT
