Karen Levy on the Rise of Intimate Surveillance

This is the eighth episode in the Algocracy and Transhumanism podcast. In this episode, IEET Affiliate Scholar John Danaher talks to Karen Levy about the topic of intimate surveillance. Karen is an assistant professor in the Department of Information Science at Cornell University, and associate member of the faculty of Cornell Law School. Tracking and surveillance are now ubiquitous. They track the number of steps we take per day, the number of calories we consume, the number of likes we get on our facebook posts and much more. Governments and corporations also track information about what we like, what we buy and what we do. What happens when we use the same technology to track and surveil aspects of our intimate relationships? That’s what they discuss in this podcast.
