Sheep, the Shepard, History, and Eugenics - A historical reminder on why personal privacy matters when it comes to the government and corporations in the digital age.

@DavidPSchaefer

Human history has dictated that we can’t trust our governments, corporations, and other entities to watch out for our personal best interests. We will look at the Eugenics movement as a reminder of the things governments can accomplish when they collect data, and then continue our journey towards the Nazi regime and how they so efficiently tracked humans via machines. This all plays into the current age of big data. This talk touch base on things that went wrong, and some of the ways we still have power to correct the current issues by building up political and technical defenses.
