Innovation and the Value of Privacy: Research Insights Panel Discussion

On Friday, February 5, 2016 the Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics hosted a half-day conference entitled “Innovation and the Value of Privacy.” This day focused on how the progression of technological advances affects the privacy of individuals. Since companies are able to collect big data and infer from it, they are able to grasp onto aspects of people’s lives which they may believe to be private. This conference addressed how individual consumers can be affected by this type of data collection and what this can mean for society.
Geoff Heal, Donald C. Waite III Professor of Social Enterprise and Bernstein Faculty Leader at Columbia Business School, moderates this panel discussion between presenters Roxana Geambasu, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University, Arvind Narayanan,Associate Professor at Princeton University, and Dierdre K. Mulligan, Professor of Information at UC Berkeley School of Information.
