Workshop: Calibrating Data Surveillance

Panelists will then discuss which uses of these surveillance techniques are most or least appropriate, and why. With the help of a moderator and audience Q&A, we will attempt to identify areas where panelists substantially agree on uses that are either appropriate or inappropriate, and also to stake out the bounds and conditions where reasonable minds are likely to disagree.
