Researchers from the European University Institute have developed a tool designed to use artificial intelligence to scan companies’ privacy policies to identify violations of data protection laws, TechCrunch reports. The European consumer organization BEUC worked with the university to have the tool, named “Claudette,” scan privacy policies to find violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The tool scanned the privacy policies of 14 companies, including Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft, finding of the 3,659 sentences scanned, 11 percent contained unclear language and 34 percent had “potentially problematic” clauses. The BEUC found problems related to companies failing to provide information about the GDPR’s transparency obligations and issues related to the processing of personal data under the rules.
