Rapid advances in embedded systems, ubiquitous sensors, automatic algorithms, machine learning, autonomous systems, and artificial intelligence will affect security, safety, and privacy on all levels.  As the current debates around national cyber-operations, Internet-of-Things regulation, cell-phone privacy, and blockchain/Bitcoin illustrate, current laws and policies are largely ill-equipped to handle our technological future. With the help of guest speakers, this seminar will explore these topics broadly:  security issues that will arise in the future, and what regulatory, legislative, judicial, and market solutions can address them.
