Privacy in the era of always-on everywhere cameras

  • Andrea Cavallaro. Privacy in the era of always-on everywhere cameras. Keynote lecture at Workshop on De-identification for privacy protection in multimedia in IEEE FG, 2015.
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Video capturing devices are everywhere. Most of them are always on. Miniature high-quality cameras are increasingly worn by people, mounted on handlebars, dashboards and micro-drones, omnipresent in hallways, elevators, streets and stores; and in your smartphone. The pervasiveness of cameras in public places is offering incredible opportunities to improve our safety and quality of life, while at the same time posing important societal challenges. Enabling video-based applications and services while protecting privacy is a major interdisciplinary challenge that must be addressed to adapt to increased capabilities of technology and changing demands from citizens. In this talk I will cover multimedia applications that extract information from images, videos and camera networks as well as privacy constraints to be taken into account in the design of video-based systems. I will discuss basic principles and several application examples, and conclude with a set of open research questions.
