Friday, July 16, 2010: 7:00 pm (Bell): As new sensing technologies appear in our cities almost overnight, what does it mean to be visible or invisible? What happens when socioeconomic categories determine when, where, and how you're seen? The asymmetry in who is visible, and where, is a long-standing urban problem, but it is now being built into our technologies and our cities.

The worlds of advertising, city planning, and law enforcement are each creating their own inconsistent visions. Privacy is not dead; rather, it is being selectively vivisected. What can we do to fix this? In this talk, a lot of problems and a few solutions will be covered, including the announcement of a new competition for the development of tactical countersurveillance tools.
