We’re lucky to have Anders Albrechtslund visiting the Dept of Culture & Communication for the next week. Anders is a PhD student in the Department of Communication at Aalborg University in Denmark, where he is engaged in research on surveillance studies, computer ethics and philosophy of technology. Anders and I met at CEPE last summer, where he delivered an excellent paper on “The postmodern panopticon: Surveillance and privacy in the age of ubiquitous computing.”
We sat down today for a chat, and Anders was kind enough to record a podcast for his department’s E-Learning Lab website. The podcast can be found here, and lasts about 10 minutes. In it, we discuss my research on how the design of networked vehicle information infrastructures and web search engines impact the privacy of one’s personal information, as well as the theory of privacy as contextual integrity.
