Revelle Forum speaker to expose Internet data-mining at Monday lecture in Neuroscience Institute Auditorium

Eli Pariser will provide “a startling exposé of personal data-mining on the Internet and show how powerful interests control the information we get to see, while allowing others to see everything about us,” as a guest of the Revelle Forum, 7 p.m. Monday, May 23, at the Neurosciences Institute auditorium, 10640 John Jay Hopkins Dr.

Pariser, board president and former executive director of MoveOn.org, will discuss his forthcoming book, “The Filter Bubble,” and take questions from the audience.

Pariser writes, “Behind the scenes a burgeoning industry of data companies is tracking your personal information — from your political leanings to the color you painted your living room to the hiking boots you just browsed on Zappos — to sell to advertisers and even to your enemies.”

Pariser will uncover how this pernicious and far-reaching trend threatens to control how we share information as a society, and how we can — and must — change course.
