While researching privacy in India, Executive Director Pam Dixon had an opportunity to do some personal research within the India health care system after a motorcycle spill that required an MRI and other health care. This video explores her experience as a privacy expert experiencing the India health care system from the inside.
When we went to shoot this video, we began by interviewing children in India about what privacy meant to them. We quickly learned that children don't always have a clear concept of privacy, and this is not something bound by geography. Children in this digital era need to be able to just be children. Our vision is that children can fully enjoy the technologies and gadgets that improve their lives without having to think too much about the privacy implications of their actions. This video was shot in Karnataka, India.
India is shifting from a paper-based society to a digitally based one, and this change is most striking in the mobile area. This video explores what these changes mean to privacy, and looks at this issue as it is playing out in India. Shot on location in Mysore, India.
In a series of five videos, we outline and share the key privacy issues we have been researching in India, and offer a first-seen peek into a world that is not often seen or experienced in Western policy circles. This video is the first in the series, and it outlines how privacy today must be reimagined, in India, and in the US. Film location: Karnataka, India.
