Genetics & Medical Apps—Ethics, Privacy, Law, and Policy @ University of Michigan Rackham Assembly Hall
Feb 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Each new genetic test or medical app generates or collects more and more detailed health data, but may also raise serious issues for medicine, public health. Under what circumstances should a test be used, and how should it be implemented? Should people be allowed to choose or refuse a test, or should it be mandatory, as newborn screening is in some states? How should the data from these tests be used, and should individuals control access to the results of their tests? If test results are released to third parties, such as employers or insurers, what protections should be in place to protect individuals from unfair treatment based on test results, data collected, or genotype?

This Dissonance series event will take a multi-disciplinary look at these issues from a variety of theoretical and applied perspectives. Panelists will include:

Lori Andrews, Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for Science, Law and, Technology at Chicago Kent Law School

Jodyn Platt, Assistant Professor, U-M Medical School

Kayte Spector-Bagdady, Assistant Professor, U-M Medical School, Chief of the Research Ethics Service in the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine (CBSSM)

Geolocation: The Real World ‘Cookie’ Eaten All Day
Mar 13 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

PI&T is excited to announce our upcoming Meetup, “Geolocation: The Real World ‘Cookie’ Eaten All Day” with Darren Abernethy, Senior Counsel at TrustArc.

Join us the evening of Wednesday, March 13th at TrustArc’s global headquarters in downtown San Francisco to hear about and discuss geolocation. Consumers voluntarily and involuntarily emit information about their actual physical locations all the live-long day—making it important to understand the forms “geolocation” data can take, how it is collected and used, and the controls end users have over the same.

Our discussion will start from the premise that geolocation is akin to a real-world “cookie,” in that over time a de-identified end user’s places/times visited—either that day or historically—may paint a vivid portrait of that user’s likes (and perhaps by extrapolation their friends’ likes too), how influenced they have been by targeted advertising campaigns, and what they may be most inclined to, for instance, purchase at a given moment in real-time. With these granular insights of course come privacy considerations that consumer trust-respecting businesses now regularly build into their services, lest they meet opposition—whether reputational or regulatory.

Schedule:
6:00PM – 6:30PM: Kick back and make nice with privacy professionals and folks from varied professional backgrounds, plus pizza, wine and beer!
6:30PM – 7:30PM: Geolocation: The Real-World “Cookie” Eaten All Day
