About the Event
Join us Saturday September 15 @107 Redfern for our 20th annual technology and digital arts showcase. This year, 40 local and international artists and technologists come together to discuss privacy in the modern age. Don’t miss out on stand out workshops, performances, installations, videos, interactive demonstrations and more as part of Sydney Fringe Festival. 2018 marks 20 fantastic years of Electrofringe performances, exhibitions, Meetups and events forging technology with community.
Join us from 12pm-late to celebrate our 20th Birthday!
EF18: YOUR PRIVACY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US
After leaking private conversations, Amazon’s “Alexa” is not to be trusted. MIT’s wearable device can hear the words you speak in your mind. Makeup camouflage has turned commuters into clowns as they attempt to hide from face-recognition technology. In the post-privacy world, internet security is becoming increasingly fickle; humanity is remaining compliant but is posting memes as a coping mechanism.
'Your privacy is very important to us' investigates the ethics of personal data collection and the uncertainty it permeates for the individual and broader society. Personal data collection has transformed the way we live our very lives- location devices allow us to track the movements of our friends and family, computing devices are integrated into our cars, TVs and refrigerators and cookies allows online shopping to be effortless.
Do we truly cherish our personal data? Will the AI evolution shape a more connected and safe society? How can we trust organisations to use our data for good, not evil?
