Abstract

We live in a society increasingly dependent on and enamored by technology, including communications, surveillance, forensic, health care, and other forms of technology. Yet, we also purport to value privacy. Is it possible to have both technology and privacy -- to realize the benefits of technology without compromising privacy? This is a difficult question and, to start, we need to define what we mean by privacy.

Keywords: Privacy, technology, security, surveillance, genetic testing, constitutional law
