Full Description

Mobile devices and smart technologies have become a common presence in our daily lives, and as these technologies become increasingly common, the line between convenience and privacy increasingly blurs.
From location tracking to voice recognition, modern technologies have become sophisticated tools for surveillance. Do you know what data about you is being shared and with whom? Or what’s happening with that data?
Whether it's targeted advertisements based on our browsing history or algorithms predicting our behavior before we even realize it, the pervasive nature of this surveillance is undeniable. These devices, which frequently have access to our cameras, microphones, and even biometric data, have the potential to delve deep into our most intimate moments, turning our lives into commodities for profit.
As we adopt these technologies, it's crucial to question the trade-offs we make for the sake of convenience. Join us as we discuss steps can we take to make more educated decisions about technology use, and what safeguards can we put in place to protect ourselves.
