Margot Kaminski on Robotic Surveillance: Authorship or Intrusion?

0

As the use of robotic technology expands private third-party surveillance will also expand to new locations and scenarios. Is it possible — or desirable — to craft meaningful laws or guidelines before widespread private adoption of robots?

In this talk Margot E. Kaminski — Research Scholar in Law, Executive Director of the Information Society Project, and Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School — explores how the pending increase in robotic surveillance poses new questions for U.S. privacy law, and the extents to which robotic surveillance will be necessary, superfluous, or deliberately intrusive.

Eszter Hargittai and Aaron Shaw on Internet Skills and Wikipedia’s Gender Inequality

0

Although women are just as likely as men to read Wikipedia, they only represent an estimated 16% of global Wikipedia editors and 23% of U.S. adult Wikipedia editors.

In this talk, Eszter Hargittai — Delaney Family Professor in the Communication Studies Department and Faculty Associate of the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University, and Aaron Shaw — Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University — discuss findings from their recent study of both Wikipedia contributors and non-contributors showing that the gender gap in editing is exacerbated by a similarly important Internet skills gap. They suggest efforts ways of overcoming the gender gap in Wikipedia contributions by addressing the Web-use skills gap, and paths for future research.

Nicholas Gruen on Government as Impresario: Emergent Public Goods and Public Private Partnerships 2.0

0

We’re used to thinking that public goods must be produced by governments. But there’s a fundamental and growing class of public goods that emerge from private interaction. Today emergent public goods — Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia — burgeon on the internet ushering in a new age. But there must exist a panoply of public goods which could be brought into existence by the right kind of partnership between private and public endeavor.

In this talk, Nicholas Gruen — a widely published policy economist, entrepreneur and commentator who has been a regular columnist in the Courier Mail, the Australian Financial Review, the Age and the Sydney Morning Herald — explores the economic basis for public/private partnerships, and shares examples of innovative partnerships that thrive in the internet age.
