The KC Legal Hackers Computational Law and Privacy Village will focus on teaching, building, and discussing interdisciplinary projects at the various intersections of law and technology. This Village will serve as a forum about collaborative ways to incorporate diverse stakeholders and proactively deal with legal issues posed in the big data and IoT context, specifically looking at privacy rights and the way that information is accessed and secured.
The village will divide and self-organize around three tracks, including:
- A Learn Track to provide a summary of basic legal and technical issues that exist in this space using Alice and Bob examples
- A Build Track to start putting together different projects, including step-by-step instructions for building a free, lightweight, zero knowledge compliance registries and dashboards
- A Discuss Track to look at the ways that policy could be built and implemented in this space, with a specific focus on the idea of data as a human right instead of as a privacy right
