On invitation of the course "Privacy Enhancing Technologies" Bill Binney will hold a "Teach-In":
Teach-In Bill Binney: GM Audimax / TU Vienna, Thursday 10.11.2016 from 16:00 to 18:00.
Bill Binney will first give an insight into his work on big data in a teach-in, after which he is happy to discuss algorithms, set-theory and privacy in big data analysis with the students.
Bill Binney, crypto-mathematician, codebreaker, analyst and late Technical Director of the NSA, in the late 1990s developed a
ground-breaking non-privacy-invasive surveillance tool that managed to cope with the three biggest challenges of the digital age: the volume, velocity and variety of data - big data, as it has become the buzz-word - all based on metadata-analysis.
Austrian filmmaker Friedrich Moser's feature documentary A GOOD AMERICAN tells the story of that program, code-named ThinThread.
Screening: Thursday 10.11.2016 Village Cinemas, 10:00
