What’s creepy? From tech reporting to Congressional policy debates, “creepy” has become a term of art capturing the unease raised by new technologies that grate against established social norms. Whether it’s an ambient sound-capturing Barbie doll, a location aware dating app, or an experiment on users’ data, innovative business models risk consumer backlash, media outcry and regulatory scrutiny. How can your company avoid the next privacy snafu? Hear Anne Toth, VP People, Policy and Compliance for red-hot Silicon Valley start up Slack Technologies, discusses signs of creepiness and strategies for risk mitigation with the authors of “A Theory of Creepy,” Yale Journal of Law and Technology.
