GEO-C Scientific talk on Every move you make: An update on the state of #geoprivacy by @carstenkessler
You all are cordially invited to attend a lecture/scientific talk “Every move you make: An update on the state of geoprivacy” by Dr Carsten Kessler, Associate Professor for Geoinformatics at Aalborg University Copenhagen. Dr. Kessler belongs to the Geoinformation research group. Before he moved to Copenhagen in 2016, Dr. Kessler was an Assistant Professor for Geographic Information Science at Hunter College, City University of New York and Associate Director of the Center for Advanced Research of Spatial Information. Until fall 2013, Dr. Kessler was a post-doc researcher in the Semantic Interoperability Lab at Institute for Geoinformatics, University of Münster, Germany, and has also worked as a consultant for the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Geneva, Switzerland. This invited lecture is part of the GEOTEC’s activities in the context of the GEO-C project (geo-c.eu)

Title: Every move you make: An update on the state of geoprivacy
Speaker: Carsten Kessler, Associate Professor for Geoinformatics at Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark. http://carsten.io/
Abstract: As location‐enabled technologies are becoming ubiquitous, our location is being shared with an ever‐growing number of external services. Issues revolving around location privacy — or geoprivacy — therefore concern the vast majority of the population, largely without knowing how the underlying technologies work and what can be inferred from an individual’s location (especially if recorded over longer periods of time). Research, on the other hand, has largely treated this topic from isolated standpoints, most prominently from the technological and ethical points of view. This talk will therefore reflect upon the current state of geoprivacy from a broader perspective. It integrates technological, ethical, legal, and educational aspects and clarifies how they interact and shape how we deal with the corresponding technology, both individually and as a society. The fictional couple of Jane and Tom is used as a running example to illustrate how common it has become to share our location information, and how it can be used — both for good and for worse.
