Reclaiming the Future: Privacy, Ethics & Organizing in Tech With Meredith Whittaker & Kade Crockford

As director of the Technology for Liberty Program at the ACLU of Massachusetts and an MIT Media Lab director’s fellow, Kade Crockford works to protect and expand core First and Fourth Amendment rights and civil liberties, focusing on how systems of surveillance and control impact not just society in general but their primary targets — people of color, Muslims, immigrants and dissidents. Kade has written for The Nation, The Guardian, The Boston Globe, WBUR and many other publications, and regularly appears in national media as an expert on issues related to technology, policing and surveillance.

Meredith Whittaker is a distinguished research scientist at New York University, co-founder and co-director of the AI Now Institute and the founder of Google’s Open Research group. She has worked extensively on issues of privacy and security in numerous capacities, including as co-founder of M-Lab, a globally distributed network measurement system that provides the world’s largest source of open data on internet performance. Whittaker has advised the White House, the FCC, the City of New York, the European Parliament and many other governments and civil society organizations on artificial intelligence, internet policy, measurement, privacy and security.
