Discussion with Dr. Ann Cavoukian (Global Privacy & Security by Design Centre)

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Synthetic Intelligence Forum is excited to convene a fireside chat with Dr. Ann Cavoukian. Dr. Cavoukian is the Executive Director of the Global Privacy & Security by Design Centre. The focus of this discussion will be on “Privacy and Responsible Artificial Intelligence”.

Topic: Privacy is a critical topic for developers, users, and regulators of responsible AI solutions. Regulatory regimes, such as the General Directive on Data Privacy (GDPR), impose strict penalties and harsh sanctions for violators. The co-evolution of increasingly sophisticated AI applications and comprehensive privacy legislation have created many opportunities and challenges for vendors and consumers of AI technologies.

In this discussion, Dr. Cavoukian will critically reflect on the application of mission-critical, industrial-strength, and production-grade privacy solutions to supplement AI systems. This discussion will focus on common governance and compliance problems related to privacy in the context of AI software as well as state of the art privacy techniques that safeguard privacy within AI systems.

Biography: Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the world’s leading privacy experts. She is presently the Distinguished Expert-in-Residence, leading the Privacy by Design Centre of Excellence at Ryerson University.

Dr. Cavoukian is also a Senior Fellow of the Ted Rogers Leadership Centre at Ryerson University, and a Faculty Fellow of the Center for Law, Science & Innovation at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.

Dr. Cavoukian served an unprecedented three terms as the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada.
