Professor Woodrow Hartzog, an internationally recognized expert in the area of privacy, media and robotics law, has been appointed to a special legislative Commission on Government Use of Facial Recognition Technology.
Based on the latest Sisk data, Professor Hartzog is among the ten most-cited law faculty in law & technology (including Internet law [cyberlaw], informational privacy, cybersecurity, and AI/robotics) in the U.S. for the period 2016-2020
“The idea is we don’t just want to be a tempest in a teapot of privacy research where we make a lot of noise, but nothing changes,” Choffnes said. “By having integrated onto our team folks like Woody Hartzog—and counterparts at other universities—we can turn our findings and observations into recommendations for new laws that would take our recommendations and put them into practice.”
Facial recognition technology can be wildly inaccurate and prone to replicating the racial or gender-based biases of the engineers who created it, says Woodrow Hartzog, a professor of law and computer science at Northeastern.
Offered by Northeastern University through Coursera, this course is designed to introduce data privacy to a wide audience and help each participant see how data privacy has evolved as a compelling concern to public and private organizations as well as individuals.
The popular book on Privacy and Design is now available in Korean.
