Hey everyone,

I'm forwarding this email along. If you're at all concerned with the fact
that the FBI has your facial features stored in their database, or if you
want to hear about how federal agencies and private companies are
incorporating facial recognition technologies into their everyday
practices, then this is a good event to go to!

*Fellows and Study Groups*
Omnipresent Technology: Facial Recognition and Us
Hosted by Jason Chaffetz, Fall 2017 Resident Fellow
With special guest Brett Tolman, Former U.S. Attorney and Staff Director,
United States Senate Judiciary Committee

*Technology exists to capture your unique facial characteristics. Private
companies and governments are building facial recognition databases for
millions of uses. If you are a suspicionless American, what is your
reasonable expectation of privacy? Do minors have rights? Are you OK with
the FBI importing your facial features into their database?  Join
Congressman Jason Chaffetz and Attorney Brett Tolman for a discussion on
technology and privacy in Washington.*

Brett Tolman was the United States Attorney for the District of Utah from
July 2006 to December 2009. Before becoming U.S. Attorney, Tolman worked as
counsel in the Senate Judiciary Committee for committee chairs Orrin Hatch
(R-UT) and then Arlen Specter (R-PA). Tolman’s most noteworthy work in the
Senate is his role in the passage of the 2005 Patriot Act reauthorization.

Jason Chaffetz was the Republican representative for Utah's 3rd congressional
district from 2009 to 2017, and has been widely recognized for his
leadership as the chairman of the powerful Oversight & Government Reform
Committee. This discussion will be the second study group of his semester
curriculum entitled "Omnipresent Technology: Politics, Privacy, & Problems."

All Harvard students (regardless of IOP affiliation) are invited to attend.
*No homework, no dress code - all are welcome!*
