AI and Data Privacy Risk Management

Presented by SGInnovate
Partnered with NUS Centre for Research in Privacy Technologies (N-CRiPT) & NUS Smart Systems Institute

Most of the current AI techniques especially related to machine learning (ML) are heavily data-driven. For example, the recent success of neural networks based deep learning has been predicated upon availability of large-scale high quality data. While AI algorithms help unlock value from data, there are many attendant risks involved. They range from private sensitive data being leaked (directly or through inference) to adversarial attacks on ML. This is of significant concern due to regulatory compliance issues due to acts such as PDPA and GDPR. Other risks involve bias in the data as well as algorithms and fairness of outcomes. The speakers will first introduce the risks involved related to AI and Data Privacy. They will also touch upon the current thinking as well as the research being done to help manage these risks.

Date: 28 August 2019, Wednesday
Time: 4:00pm – 6:00pm
