- Statement of Task: An ad hoc steering committee appointed by the National Research Council will plan and convene a two-day workshop addressing the civil liberties and privacy implications of information and communication technologies. It will look at academic and industry research, emerging approaches, and best practices and consider these in the context of intelligence collection and analysis. The workshop will explore three main themes: (1) privacy implications of emerging technologies, (2) public and individual preferences and attitudes toward privacy and the social science and behavioral economics of privacy, and (3) ethical approaches to data collection and use. This workshop will involve and foster interaction between the intelligence community and academic and industry experts, and enable participants to share knowledge and active research work via presentations, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions. A rapporteur-authored workshop summary will be prepared.
