The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has announced the agenda for the seventh session of its Hearings Initiative. Beginning Nov. 1, the FTC will hold a series of public hearings examining privacy, big data and competition; algorithms, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics; data security; and consumer privacy, among others. The seventh hearing, which will take place at Howard University Law School Nov. 13–14, will look to inform the FTC and policymakers with a greater understanding of algorithms, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics. The FTC also seeks public comment on a range of questions about policy, ethics, consumer protection issues, and competition issues associated with the technologies in question.
