"On Privacy and Self-Presentation Online." Carissa Veliz, a philosopher from the University of Oxford, is featured in Emory's "The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence: AI Humanity Lecture Series." Veliz will argue that to combat some of the negative trends we witness online, we need to cultivate a culture of privacy, in contrast to a culture of exposure.
