WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - A poll of Purdue University students has found that most of them believe technology will improve their lives despite worries that it could limit their online privacy.

The survey of 750 students was conducted ahead of a Thursday summit on the West Lafayette campus called “Dawn or Doom” that will explore technology’s rapid evolution, including whether it’s advancing faster than our ability to understand, regulate or control it.

The poll found two-thirds of Purdue students believe improved technology will make their lives significantly better, while about one-third said it will make their lives slightly better.

But more than half of the students surveyed said they’ll have a lot less online privacy in the future and about one-third said they’ll have slightly less privacy online in the years ahead.
