Episode Description

There are unlimited possibilities for using artificial intelligence (AI), for the benefit of a few, to benefiting large populations. Many in the information security sector are hopeful that AI can strengthen cybersecurity efforts. But, can they also be used to exploit cybersecurity vulnerabilities? And what about privacy? Will AI be used more to invade privacy, or to protect privacy? Considering these issues, and certainly there are many more to consider, just how accurate are all those AI tools being offered? How are AI algorithms validated as being dependable and/or accurate? Are they biased? Is it possible to have unbiased AI? What are the consequences of something going wrong with AI? What are current trends in AI? Rebecca discusses these and related issues with Dr. John Cook in this episode.

Data Security and Privacy with the Privacy Professor

Tuesday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more big data analytics are used, and more artificial intelligence systems are deployed, cybersecurity and privacy risks grow exponentially. Rebecca has spent her entire career working to improve information security and privacy protections, by not only raising awareness of the issues within businesses and other types of organizations, but also by raising the awareness of these risks in the public and helping them to understand how to better protect their own personal data, allowing them to take their privacy protections into their own hands. Rebecca offers you information about these existing and emerging security and privacy risks and provides fresh insights into the impacts of exploiting these risks, and gives guidance, tips, expert advice, news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
