Total Funding to Date



  • Yang Wang

Privacy or security mechanisms are usually designed with the generic population in mind. As such, they often fall short of supporting many under-studied or marginalized sub-populations, such as children, older adults, people with disabilities, activists, journalists, victims of crimes or domestic violence, and people from non-western or developing countries. The goal of this project is to design effective privacy mechanisms for people with disabilities, focusing on visual impairments. More broadly, this project aims to pave the way towards "Inclusive Privacy," a vision of designing effective privacy mechanism for the widest range of people possible.
