Living data: place, presence and privacy in a mobile world
06 June 2018, 6:30 pm–7:30 pm
As smartphone users, we share snippets of our daily lives with our loved ones and broader public through various mobile communication practices. We leave traces of ourselves - how, where and with whom we used to be, or what we used to do - and contribute to the generation of 2.5 quintillion Bytes of data every day.

Some of this data has geospatial references, i.e. location data, providing information on where people and things are located in real-time.
This timely session will consider the implications of location data in relation to the systems of mobility which evolve with real-time connectivity and locational tracking. We'll reflect on how location data affects our privacy, and our sense of place, presence and memory.
