To celebrate Data Protection Day (28 January), the Council of Europe (CoE), CPDP and the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), are co-organising a one-day event full of keynote speeches and panel discussions on how to safeguard individuals’ rights to privacy and data protection.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a reality and has woven its way into everyday life: navigation systems, spam filters, weather forecasts to name but a few.
There have been significant advancements in the field of machine learning, a subset of AI. The machines learn due to the complex algorithms that allow them to analyse huge data sets and make predictions using these data. Along with enhancing the machines’ skills, increasing amounts of data are being collected and information on human behaviour are being monitored; all of which present challenges for privacy and data protection.
The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly growing in sectors such as healthcare, finance, transportation, manufacturing and entertainment. Its increasing popularity in recent years is largely due to its ability to automate tasks, such as processing large amounts of information or identifying patterns, and its widespread availability to the public.
