Emerging Tech 101: Learn About Digital Privacy at The Seattle Public Library on May 13
release date: 05/07/2019
Do you feel adrift in the sea of new technologies? Join us for a talk on digital privacy from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 13 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 4, Washington Mutual Foundation Meeting Room 1, 206-386-4636. You'll learn what these new technologies are, why they're important, and how they're applied in real life.
The Internet has made life more convenient but it has also put us at risk. How can you protect your information online? Are smartphone apps safe? What should you be aware of while on public Wi-Fi? Learn about this technology from Jared Moore, whose research addresses digital privacy. Moore has a master's degree from the UW School of Computer Science and most recently worked for the Wadhwani Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
Library events are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library's garage for $7 after 5 p.m.
This program series is made possible by support from UW CoMotion Labs, and is presented in partnership with the City of Seattle's Community Technology Advisory Board.
The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. We support universal access to information and ideas, and form strong partnerships with community organizations to offer presentations and workshops that are accessible to all.
