We Are Mapping Your World, Inside: What's Private?
Saturday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM
110 E 2nd St
What if every step you took was mapped? Not just outside, but also inside. The stairway to your apartment. The elevator to your office. Your route through the mall. The column you stand by while waiting for coffee. The bar where everyone congregates after work. Your kitchen.
Technology developed to locate firefighters and soldiers is being implemented on mobile devices to discover building maps. Your data – combined with data from your friends and neighbors – creates detailed indoor maps. That's awesome and powerful in a lot of ways. The maps can be used to navigate and to locate people. We are safer (911 - you're on floor 8). But the map may be disturbing to some. It's built by collecting data all the time. Every step you take. What map data should be exposed? Just public buildings? My home?
We are mapping the world. Every building, corridor, and gathering space. It will make the world safer, but it opens up a dilemma. Privacy versus safety, efficiency, fun. What are the rules?

Carol is CEO of TRX Systems, delivering location and mapping indoors and in areas without reliable GPS. TRX algorithms use sensor fusion, ranging, and mapping to deliver 3D indoor maps and location where GPS is unavailable. Core to the TRX NEON technology is the ability to fuse information from many devices to populate navigation maps of indoor spaces (including building structural features and unique building signatures). TRX algorithms power defense and public safely applications, and are now being deployed on mobile devices.
Prior to TRX, Carol was senior vice president for corporate and product development at kajeet®, a cell phone service with unique online controls and comprehensive safely services, founder & VP marketing/product at Megisto (now Syniverse), and vice president of product management for data core solutions at Ericsson.Hide the rest
