Data (in)Security: MIT Scientists Tackle Privacy

In recent years no technology issue has drawn as much debate as data privacy, from revelations about government surveillance to major corporate data breaches.
The topic has spurred tough questions about the balance between access and privacy and how to use data to help solve problems without sacrificing anonymity.
If anyone can tackle these issues, it’s the team at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Since the lab’s founding 50 years ago, its researchers have been at the hub of the technology revolution and key players in developing innovations like the personal computer, Ethernet and the World Wide Web.
A panel of CSAIL’s leading thinkers - including RSA algorithm co-inventor Ron Rivest, and former White House adviser Danny Weitzner - will discuss their work on the subject and the biggest challenges for today’s data scientists and privacy advocates.
