Privacy in a Networked World - Final Projects
Some of the final projects in Prof. Wright’s Spring 2021 Privacy in a Networked World class had a publicly available component, and we wanted to share them with any of you interested. These varied student-driven projects take many different forms, including traditional written reports. Publicly available results here include podcasts, a web page, and open-source code. Thanks to the students for sharing these projects!
