We live in an age where little of what we do is kept private. Scientia’s colloquium series for the coming year look at privacy from multiple perspectives, including computer science, law, architecture, history, and the future. Continuing the discussion about Privacy, the Scientia Institute welcomes: Steve Murdock, Allyn R. and Gladys M.
