Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionise our daily lives: from AI-powered virtual assistants that help us to navigate the internet, to AI-powered machines that serve our consumer, health or other needs. AI will also drive more efficient industrial processes, delivering smarter networks and better products and services at reduced costs. Organisations seeking to harness the power of AI must first consider the ethical implications of this new capability. In particular, the ability of algorithms to learn at a speed which far surpasses human capacity could have detrimental consequences for our privacy, for example by re-identifying individuals from previously anonymous datasets or by developing ever more accurate profiles of our preferences and behaviours. Conversely, AI could be leveraged to enhance our privacy by providing organisations with the means to understand potential risks of harm to individuals or by helping individuals to assert their own preferences and permissions on their digital interactions with people and businesses. So how can organisations get the best out of AI without introducing new privacy risks? This session will bring together mobile industry leaders, innovators, researchers and policymakers to share experiences and discuss best practice for designing privacy into AI-powered solutions. Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Register here before 9:00 on Tuesday 26 February to gain priority access to this session. Priority lane access closes 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.
