Austin Hall; 100 Classroom - North

Join us on Wednesday, October 25th at the Berkman Klein Center for a deep dive with Kashmir Hill, tech reporter for the New York Times, on her new book Your Face Belongs to Us: A Secretive Startup’s Quest to End Privacy As We Know It. It’s the story of a small AI company that gave the power of instant facial recognition to law enforcement, billionaires, and businesses.

In conversation with Professor Jonathan Zittrain, Hill will discuss her book-length investigation into the ultimate surveillance tool. From mainstream entertainment venue surveillance to alluring cell phone apps, Hill traces how tech companies slowly primed citizens to passively accept facial recognition tech that can easily be used–and abused–for social control.
