Digital Footprints, Free Speech, Privacy and Propaganda

By Jim Isaak, IEEE-NH Chair



A look at the economic, technical and policy factors that affect the "Free" (ad supported) services on the Internet, how they track and profile individuals, target them for advertising, and some of the privacy, propaganda and policy issues that arise from this intersection of  big data, AI and our connected lives.

Individuals are encouraged to watch either the Netflix's "The Social Dilemma" and/or PBS "Hacking you Mind" before the event if possible, a more complete list of related resources is available at:
