Event Details

Lighting systems increasingly allow building owners to track activity within a given building and respond accordingly.  These systems track our movement, know when we are in or out of a given building and even include video cameras.  While the gathering of this information is mostly benign, the prevalence of these systems raises important questions about balancing privacy with security, energy consumption and other building functions. 

The emergence of systems that will be collecting large amounts of data on our whereabouts and our movement comes at time of heightened tension about the broad distribution of security cameras in public spaces and government surveillance programs.  The time is ripe to address this critical subject.  Our moderator, Diane Cardwell of The New York Times, recently published an article on this subject which you can read here: http://nyti.ms/1nJSVN1.

Join us June 10th for a panel discussion of the challenges faced by these new technologies, what other functionality we can expect in the near future, and, most importantly, how we might effectively balance our privacy with the omniscience of a connected world.
