How do we get privacy right?


Establishing privacy rights is a multifaceted and complex issue, as discussed by Michael I. Jordan on the Lex Fridman Podcast. According to Jordan, privacy should be seen as an individual decision, which is not necessarily a binary or purely legal matter. He emphasizes the importance of personal agency in managing who knows what about an individual, and the need for new structures and regulatory bodies to manage privacy effectively. Jordan analogizes this with the development of electrical engineering, suggesting that privacy, like electricity, will require layers of management and regulation over decades to get it right 1.
