Privacy is dead! Or is it? This talk will explore the darker side of social media, smartphones, smart speakers. How and why do these technologies track your behavior online and in your homes? What can they know about you? Why do people struggle to protect their privacy? The talk further discusses research advances that can lead to better privacy protections and user controls, and what you can do now to take back your privacy.

Florian Schaub is Assistant Professor in the University of Michigan School of Information. His research combines privacy, human-computer interaction, emerging technologies, and public policy. He studies people’s privacy decision making and behavior, investigates technology-related privacy implications, and develops user-centric privacy solutions that help people better manage their privacy in technology contexts. Dr. Schaub holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Ulm, and was a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University.
