Abstract: In this connected world and the society's permeating data gathering efforts, loss of privacy, either real or perceived, is a serious concern to many people and organizations. This concern strains the adoption of computing technology for achieving its full potential for the benefit of the society. For this reason, privacy research is now a major component of the Trustworthy Computing program at the National Science Foundation. In this talk, I will give a personal view on the myriad research aspects that need our attention, and discuss various approaches.
