Users' Privacy Perceptions of Emerging Technologies

"Emerging technologies are technologies whose development, practical applications, or both are still largely unrealized, such that they are figuratively emerging into prominence from a background of nonexistence or obscurity" (wikipedia). With the rapid changes on technological landscape, people are having to deal with unprecedented privacy risks. The goal of this project is to identify users' privacy misconceptions, risks, concerns, and expectations, which lead to the design of usable and effective privacy policies for the technologies that are likely to experience wide-spread use in the near future. In our ongoing works, we investigate users' privacy perceptions of Internet-of-Things (IoT), and Digital Medicine technology.
