|WEDNESDAY KEYNOTE The End of Privacy|
|Our use of the Internet leaves a growing and forever permanent trail: a digital footprint. Tracking these footprints is artificial intelligence: shown to accurately deduce the most intimate details of our psychological profiles and behaviors; traits and information once deemed to be very private information. Today, with heightened privacy concerns, what does the future hold when algorithms reveal and use this once-private information?|
Behavioral Psychologist and Computational Scientist Dr. Michal Kosinski will eloquently reveal how our online behavior, (e.g., harmlessly liking a post on Facebook), hands the keys to our personality to these algorithms. He will demonstrate the implications – both good and bad – of the immense amount of privacy we have long since given up as well as reveal there is room for hope, citing real-world examples of how society has been dramatically improved by some of these privacy losses.
