ASIS&T Africa Chapter: AI Safeguards: Preserving Your Right to Privacy Online
Wednesday, November 30, 2022 (8:00 AM - 9:30 AM)
Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and tools increasingly underpin the digital world usually without fully disclosing their purposes and actions. This talk will highlight how digital artefacts, such as cookies and fingerprints, work in conjunction with AI algorithms and tools to track your online activities and influence your behavior. The talk will include practical know-how, including free digital tools, to safeguard your data and preserve your online privacy.
The talk is made possible through the European Union funded project, Citizen Scientists Investigating Cookies and App GDPR compliance (CSI-COP), that involves democratising AI innovation by engaging interested members of the public as citizen scientists to co-investigate the extent of online tracking. CSI-COP was recently shortlisted for a Privacy, InfoSec, Culture, Change, Awareness, Societal, Organisation (PICCASO) Award in the ‘Best Innovative Privacy Project Category (https://www.piccasoprivacyawards.com/shortlist).
