Join Professor Itsuko Yamaguchi, visiting from the University of Tokyo, for her lecture titled "How to Protect Your Privacy Against 'Smart' Surveillance in Japan." The lecture is co-sponsored by the Japan Foundation and CICL. Lunch will be served.
For more information, please contact Stefanie Kandzia.
Newly-emerging “smart” information technology collects information about us. It can use such information to provide us with personalized and context-specific support, or it can engage in unobtrusive surveillance in our daily life, often without our knowledge. In her presentation, Professor Yamaguchi provides an overview of the state of the art of technology and shows how “smart” surveillance encroaches on our daily life. She will analyze the implications of such technologies for the concepts and values of privacy, in particular in Japan, but also in the US and the UK. She will also suggest ways to protect our privacy.
Prof. Yamaguchi has a Master in Socio-Information Studies from the Graduate School of Sociology at the University of Tokyo. She was appointed as a Research Associate of Information Law & Policy at the Institute of Socio-Information and Communication Studies at the same university, followed by an appointment as Associate Professor of Information Law & Policy at the Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies at the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, also at The University of Tokyo. She is now a Professor there. Prof. Yamaguchi has been a Visiting Scholar for full academic years at the Harvard Law School and more recently at the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre.
