15:00 - 15:15: Studying population dynamics without compromising people's privacy

Speaker: René Peralta (NIST, USA)

Abstract: We discuss the measurement of aggregate levels of encounters in a population, a concept we call encounter metrics. The technique is designed so that it can be deployed while preserving the privacy of individuals. We compare the privacy profile of encounter metrics to that of GAEN, the Google/Apple exposure notification system.

Description:

The most effective Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems exploit complex machine learning models to fulfill their tasks due to their high performance. Unfortunately, the most effective machine learning models use for their decision processes a logic not understandable from humans that makes them real black-box models. The lack of transparency on how AI systems make decisions is a clear limitation in their adoption in safety-critical and socially sensitive contexts.
