Take Note: Privacy in the Digital Age with Sascha Meinrath

Sascha Meinrath, Palmer Chair of Telecommunications at Penn State and one of the nation's most influential figures in technology.

As technology becomes cheaper and more advanced so do concerns about privacy. Everything we do online leaves digital breadcrumbs that make it easy for a marketer, a criminal, or our government  to determine who we are, where we are, and what we like. How do we balance the increased convenience and security that technology offers against our loss of privacy? And in today’s world of high-tech surveillance, how much privacy can we reasonably expect?  WPSU's Patty Satalia talks about that and more with Penn State’s Sascha Meinrath, the Palmer Chair in Telecommunications and one of the nation’s most influential figures in technology.    

Patty Satalia was a senior producer/host for WPSU-TV and FM from 1987 to 2017. Prior to joining Penn State Public Broadcasting, she worked in commercial television in Pittsburgh, first as a film editor and fill-in capsule news anchor for WPGH-TV, and later, for WPTT-TV as public affairs director and co-host of the talk-show, People, Places and Things.
