Abstract

The power of computational analysis has increased at an exponential pace while the costs of data storage have decreased inversely. As a result data analysis of personally identifiable information is now pervasive. Existing privacy laws are outdated and no longer reflect the technical reality. Changes to existing American privacy protections are required.

Keywords: data, privacy, surveillance
