I will have the pleasure today of serving as a keynote speaker at the Connect: ID 2018 conference in Washington. Connect:ID is an international conference on identity technologies including biometrics, mobile applications and secure credentials. I will be speaking on identity, privacy, and anonymity. The speech will be at 8:30 am at the Washington Convention Center.
Privacy has long been in a race with technology — a race that it has often lost to the demise of legal doctrines like the trespass doctrine. The rate of technological advancement however is increasing to a point that privacy rights could easily be practically negated. More than ever, privacy advocates and industry figures need to work closely to together to allow advancements while protecting the privacy values that define us.
