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.
