It is my great pleasure to give a keynote speech at the Federal Identity Conference in Tampa, Florida today — an international gathering of government, private, and academic experts in the field of biometric technology. I will be presenting material from two forthcoming law review articles on privacy in the biometric age. I will be speaking at the Tampa Convention Center at 10:15 am.
My results will address facial recognition and biometric technology at transparency-forcing technology. The first article is titled Anonymity, Obscurity, and Technology: Reconsidering Privacy in the Age of Biometrics. The article addresses how our concept and protection of privacy must change in an increasingly transparent world. The second article titled From Here To Obscurity: Conceiving A Biometric Privacy Act for an Anonymous Society explores the outlines of a federal biometric privacy act.
