In the Know: Chicago's Spy in the Sky

Do the new “automated speed enforcement” laws just raise city revenue or benefit citizens in other ways? Do Chicagoans feel safer with cameras on our street corners or is the government spending too much time and money looking over our city of big shoulders?

Join us as for a panel discussion about Chicago under surveillance as we talk about what these cameras mean to the city and our safety, and look at larger implications of privacy and what constitutes public space.

Our panelists will include Rajiv Shah, assistant professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago, whose research seeks to understand the relationship between society and the design of information technologies.
