HIDE Upcoming Events
HIDE – Homeland Security, Biometric Identification & Personal Detection Ethics
offer a setting for exploratory discussions of complex issues involving multiple parties. Unlike focus groups, policy forums do not have the direct tie-in to a particular technology or a set of technology solutions; instead they address wide ranging general policy issues, which crosscut all technological fields. The general remit of Policy Forums is to reflect on and question basic assumptions and values involved in the public conversation on biometrics and personal detection technologies. They issue a yearly comprehensive report on their activity.
Policy areas to be examined are:
- Privacy as Contextual Integrity
- Body Issues
- Outsourcing of Systems for Detection, Identification and Authentication
