About the Event
Is privacy a possibility anymore? Did you know that by web search and a cheek swab, a 15 year boy identified his biological father who as a sperm donor was promised anonymity? Are consumers, employees, or citizens of social communities simply resigned to lose their right to privacy? This event features three experts on these questions.
Yaniv Erlich has done highly publicized research on the relative ease by which genetic information can be identified by predictive models relying on data in the public domain. Daniel Barth-Jones is an epidemiologist and expert on the topic of statistical disclosure risk analysis and control with a specific focus on public policy evaluations for the HIPAA Privacy rule and healthcare data. Alondra Nelson is one of the leading scholars on data, privacy, and race. The discussion will focus on how big of a problem the loss of privacy is, and what algorithmic ethics can contribute towards mitigating the worst of the dangers in the disambiguation of personal information and the subsequent loss of privacy.
