In science we observe, listen and record the activities of the environment and beyond. There is intense curiosity to understand how things work, how they behave and how each interaction can affect every player in that interaction. Some of the great accomplishments out of this curiosity is ensuring a longer, healthier life for humans, monitoring health conditions, predicting the weather, monitoring climate change, providing medicine to cure diseases, alleviating aches and pains, and providing clean water for our basic needs. Science informs public policy and personal decisions on energy, conservation, agriculture, health, transportation, communication, defence, economics, leisure, and exploration. Why not privacy? In this webinar, Roy Biakpara will be juxtaposing privacy with how science works, – particularly from the perspective of observation, investigation and recording – testing logic and findings with evidence.
