2023 conference recap

P.S.R. 2023 took a deep drive into
new and familiar privacy/tech issues

Artificial intelligence was the focus of P.S.R.’s keynote speeches and 15 of the breakout sessions in the 58-session agenda. The AI speeches and sessions provided in-depth perspectives on AI while leaving plenty of room for perennial issues like breach response, risk management, privacy engineering, applying privacy-enhancing technologies and operational efficiencies.

Sessions included: “Can PETs Save Adtech?,” “The Art of Human Hacking,” “Digital Health Data Flows,” and “The Future of Biometrics: Everything Al at Once.” See session presentations for more details on these and other topics.

Access P.S.R. 2023 Presentations

Keynote speakers Nita Farahany, Kashmir Hill, Jennifer King and Orly Lobel dove into AI’s legal, societal and ethical dimensions through the perspectives of their books and research.

Farahany, author of “The Battle for Your Brain,” described a path for navigating a world populated with technologies to discover what we are thinking and why. Hill, who wrote about capturing biometrics through surveillance technologies in “Your Face Belongs to Us,” examined the need for regulation to prevent loss of personal freedoms. Lobel, author of “The Equality Machine,” took a more optimistic view of digital technologies’ potential. King, a privacy and data policy researcher at Stanford University’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, explored emerging technologies’ effects on online privacy and public policy.

In between keynotes and breakout sessions, P.S.R. offered constant opportunities to make new connections. Attendees could choose from larger networking activities, such as the Five-Minute Mixer to the welcome reception, to smaller networking breaks, topical discussions and more.

In her latest book “Your Face Belongs to Us,” Kashmir Hill tells the story of the rise of a technological superpower and a warning that, in the absence of vigilance and government regulation, facial recognition is one of the many new technologies that challenge what Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once called “the right to be let alone.”
