What to read on Privacy: Cross border data sharing, surveillance, consent, nutritions labels, AI

Leading up to our #NAMAprivacy conference on The Future of User Data – for which we’re all full up – we’ve put together a list of things to read, to understand the environment around privacy, and where the conversation is headed. MediaNama is hosting this session with support from Facebook, Google and Microsoft. The event starts tomorrow at 10am, at the Gulmohar Hall, India Habitat Centre (entry from Gate #3).

We shared a reading list yesterday on differential privacy, app permissions, blockchain, and financial data, for the first two of our panels. For the second two, we have the following recommendations, which are by no means comprehensive:
