Marshini participated in a great panel on applications of artificial intelligence for a College Readiness Program offered by the Office of Special Programs in April. She also worked with the Connecting Contexts Team to deliver a workshop on Keeping Kids Safe Online at our partner school in Chicago in April. More recently in June, Marshini gave a talk on misleading online content such as dark patterns and disguised advertisements at the 17th Annual Center for Competition Policy Conference on Rethinking Consumer Policy held virtually at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom. She also presented her work on AdIntuition and automatically disclosing online endorsements at the Federal Trade Commission. All these events were held virtually!

Together with Helen Nissenbaum (Cornell Tech), Yan Shvartzshnaider (New York University) and Blase Ur (University of Chicago), Marshini co-organized and hosted the Virtual Town Hall on Contextual Integrity of Contact Tracing on September 22, 2020. This was a successful event with a lively virtual panel and breakout rooms with great panelists and session leaders from law, computer science, and communication disciplines to name a few. The video of the event will be made available soon but you can read more about the event at the PrivaCI website. This is our third event which we moved to virtual in 2020 owing to the pandemic. We aim to hold an in-person event in Chicago when that is possible but stay tuned for updates.
