We are surrounded by sensors: our cars collect detailed information about our driving habits and destinations; our smart phones gather a growing array of increasingly detailed and comprehensive information about our communication activities and more. The growing network of sensors contributes to a fast-growing stream of data about everything from weather to the details of our personal lives and our movements throughout the course of the day.

The resulting shift away from targeted, discrete forms of information collection to always-on, ubiquitous, expanding and accelerating data collection marks important changes in our understandings of surveillance, information processing, and privacy in the digital era. The sensor society therefore raises significant questions about the role of privacy, power and surveillance in the world of ever-watching, ever-sensing, always-on devices. Control over the sensing infrastructure, the databases, and the response platforms will play a crucial role in how information is used and who benefits.

Hosted in conjunction with the TC Beirne School of Law, this multi-disciplinary conference explores theoretical, empirical, legal and historical approaches to the sensor society.
