Abstract: Over the decades to come, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are set to change the world as we know it, ushering an era in which cars drive themselves, robots assist us across increasingly diverse tasks, and vast amounts of data are mined to manage traffic, reduce pollution, improve public health, reduce crime, and much more. Many of these predicted changes assume the collection and processing of unprecedented amounts of personal data. Some have suggested that it is inevitable for these changes to lead to the end of privacy.

In this lecture, I will discuss what privacy is, discuss its many different facets and how some regulatory requirements attempt to protect us from practices that threaten to erode our expectations of privacy, including recent regulations such as the European General Protection Regulation (GDPR). I will discuss how both Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things are making privacy particularly challenging, and how these same technologies also offer the promise of solutions that could ultimately help protect people’s privacy. This presentation is based on research my group and I have been conducting at Carnegie Mellon University over the past decade, including practical tools and technologies we are already piloting today.
