ITS Rio Research Group gathers students and professionals from all over Brazil to analyze issues related to the Institute’s areas of activities during a year. ITS Rio arranges monthly meetings through an interactive platform and, in each meeting, a topic is presented and discussed by the participants, guided by one of ITS’s professors.
At the end of the research group cycle, participants must deliver at least one paper in Portuguese or English, under the license of Creative Commons (CC-BY-NC-SA) to be printed and diffused to the Institute’s national and international networks.
The first group developed the topic of Privacy in the Digital Era in 2016. The 16 selected researchers discussed issues related to privacy as a fundamental right, privacy and Brazil’s Internet Bill of Rights, right to be forgotten, legislative initiatives for data protection, big data, algorithm society, Internet of Things (IoT), privacy and public security, privacy and surveillance state, among others. The papers produced will be presented in the first trimester of 2017.
