Privacy and AI
AI is both fuelled by, and produces, massive amounts of data. In many cases this data includes personal information which is regulated by privacy laws that were not drafted with AI technologies in mind. Nonetheless, privacy laws and AI technologies must find a way to co-exist. During this presentation, we will review key privacy risks and issues that arise in connection with AI technologies, as well as recent regulatory developments and the impact that they may have.
