Privacy in the Age of Pervasive Photo Sharing
As digital photography and online photo sharing become more commonplace, we will need to reconsider our notions of privacy. How will people react to constant surveillance by their peers, and what technical solutions can enhance privacy in this new age? Can we leverage people's sense of 'propriety' to protect other people's privacy? In this talk, I will highlight some of our research on answering and addressing these questions from a social and technical standpoint.
Apu Kapadia is a Professor of Computer Science at the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, Indiana University Bloomington (IUB), as well as Director of the IUB MS Cybersecurity Risk Management Program. Before joining Indiana University, he received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), was later a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Dartmouth College, and then a Member of Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
Apu Kapadia is interested in topics related to computer security and privacy. He is particularly interested in usable security and HCI; pervasive computing in the context of cameras, wearables, and IoT; and accountable anonymity. For his work on accountable anonymity, two of his papers were named as 'Runners-up for PET Award 2009: Outstanding Research in Privacy Enhancing Technologies'. He has received several NSF grants, including an NSF CAREER award in 2013, and a Google Research Award in 2014. He was also a recipient of the Indiana University Trustees Teaching Award in 2013, the Dr. James E. Mumford Excellence in Extraordinary Teaching Award in 2021, and a Distinguished Alumni Educator Award from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2015. For the years 2015 and 2016, he was Program Co-Chair of the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) and Co-Editor-in-Chief of the associated journal Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs). He is currently the Privacy and Security Subcommittee Co-Chair for the upcoming CHI 2021 conference. He is currently the General Chair of the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security.
