Connected cars promise to transform safety and convenience on our roads, but for them to work, they’re going to need data—your data. Lauren Smith explains that tomorrow’s cars will learn more about you, and how what they learn may save your life. She also reminds us that for consumers to trust and use these technologies, privacy protections must be built in from the outset. Lauren Smith is Policy Counsel at the Future of Privacy Forum, where she focuses on big data and the Internet of Things as related to connected cars, data ethics, and algorithmic decision-making. Lauren runs the FPF Connected Cars Project, where she leads FPF’s interaction with companies across the connected car ecosystem, along with strategic communication and media, and interaction with federal and state regulators.
Previously, Lauren was a Policy Advisor in the White House Office of Science and Technology and a Research Associate for Economic Policy at the Center for American Progress. Lauren is a graduate of Wesleyan University and the UC Berkeley School of Law, where she earned a Certificate in Law and Technology. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
