Join us at Georgetown as we bring together creative student work and expert panel conversation to reflect on the potential benefits and dangers of data profiling, reasonable expectations of privacy in the digital age, the ethics of “truth” in the age of information bubbles, and more. The event will begin at 6 p.m. in Riggs Library in Healy Hall with a reception and student gallery, including drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres. The panel discussion will begin at 7:30 in Gaston Hall.
