Description
This is the second semester learning community course for the Privacy Surveillance BlockU. We now live in an era of around-the-clock surveillance where our daily communications, activities and movements are tracked, stored and analyzed by government and businesses on a scale never before imagined. The digitization of information, the ascendance of Big Data analytics, the growth of behavioral marketing and the increasingly sophisticated tracking technologies have combined to fundamentally alter our concept of personal privacy.
