-     This course includes: The technical approach to database design and real implementations using ORACLE (SQL, PL-SQL, FORMS, REPORTS, and GRAPHICS). 

The specific focus of the proposed course is to study several areas in which privacy and technology are thought to be in conflict, decide if these conflicts are real and, if so, discuss what could reasonably be done about them in the areas of both technology and policy. The subtext of this thrust is that much of the current debate over the privacy-invasiveness of technology rests on misunderstandings of what is really possible with technology and which technologies constitute the most potent threats to individual privacy.
