Designing for Privacy in the Physical World

IAPP Data Protection Congress, November 2022, Brussels


As the smart city is gaining ground all over the world, people are increasingly worried about their privacy in the physical world.

As sensors and facial recognition technology become cheaper and more widely available, how do we know who is using it and why?

How can organizations build trust and show accountability in an environment where space is limited and people are only passing by?

For those organizations who are willing to bridge the gap with users, this session will discuss the challenges they will encounter when trying to develop an effective communication, and how design can help them to overcome these challenges.
