Advancing the New Machine: Mobile Technology Panel

Machine: Human Rights and Technology", a conference for human rights
practitioners and technologists to discuss the progress, successes,
and challenges that have emerged with the growth of information

At the conference, the Mobile Technology panel focused on mobile
technology as a data collection tool, highlighting the challenges in
implementing such projects and ensuring the security of those using
it.
