Guest: H.V. Jagadish, PhD, Bernard A. Galler Collegiate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan If your smartphone’s always within reach, if you talk to Alexa and Siri more often than you talk to some of your real-life friends, then you should really care about the outcome of a case being considered by the US Supreme Court right now. It involves a guy named Timothy Carpenter who was convicted of helping rob a couple of Radio Shack and T-Mobile stores several years back. The FBI was able to close its case against Carpenter by getting cell phone call records and location information from his wireless company. The reason the Supreme Court is hearing this case is that the FBI got Carpenter’s data from his cell company without a warrant.
