Episode Description

AI has quickly become pervasive in all our lives. But, how can it impact us? Consider a couple of examples. Lensa is an app that takes real photos and uses AI to make art images from them. Millions have used it. Others are concerned about the related privacy and intellectual property rights problems it creates. Lensa uses a huge open-source collection of data to train its AI that contains than 5 billion publicly accessible images that it categorizes as “research.” However, it not only includes copyrighted work, but also personal medical records and images, as well as disturbing images of violence and sexual abuse, many from police reports. This creates privacy, copyright and other intellectual property rights, legal and compliance concerns. Another AI tool, ChatGPT, surpassed 100 million users early in 2023 and is creating a large and growing number of concerns about security, privacy, intellectual property and legal risks. Use of artificial intelligence (AI) is predicted to grow by more than 25% each year for the next five years and could contribute over $15 trillion to the global economy by 2030. Many questions need to be answered about AI! Listen in to hear my conversation with Pamela Gupta about a wide range of AI issues. • Who is ensuring the AI algorithms are secure? And accurate? • What happens if someone’s private photos show up incorporated into an AI generated image? • What are the privacy risks? • What are the security risks? • What are the ethical considerations for AI use? • What are the dangers of biased AI? • What are the “Essential Trusted AI Pillars”? Pamela answers these and many more questions.

Data Security and Privacy with the Privacy Professor

New shows the first Saturday of each month at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more surveillance tactics 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 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 and news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
