xLab Virtual Roundtable - Protecting Pets Privacy | Weatherhead School at Case Western Reserve University

xLab Virtual Roundtable - Protecting Pets Privacy

The topic of data privacy and ownership is a popular one - but what about data ownership and privacy as it relates to our pets? As more devices become "smart", such as collars, food bowls, and/or devices that track your pet's activities and health, the question will become more pressing. The Animal Welfare Act was written in 1966 - long before the internet, smart phones, and Web 3 launched concerns about data privacy. Outside of this law, animals have no legal rights, and are usually categorized under law as property. How is data of property protected and most importantly who can access it?

Join xLab as we talk with Mark Donavon, Global Director of the Digital and AI Solutions Group at Purina and Daniel Cheng, Director of IoT Product Management for Purina, as we discuss the growing amount of data that is being collected about our pets. 

Thursday, Dec. 15, 2022 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
