Research aims to automatically answer user questions on online privacy policies

Internet users may soon have a way to have their questions about online privacy policies answered automatically, thanks to a new multi-institution research project that includes Penn State. The project aims to enable people to ask questions about the privacy issues that matter to them when reviewing privacy policies.

The researchers will create software in the form of mobile applications, web browser plugins and interactive websites by developing and using algorithms in the areas of natural language processing, machine learning, and knowledge representation and reasoning. The interdisciplinary project aims to reinvent notice and choice — the idea that privacy policies are sufficient because users are given notice about how their information will be used and choices about what they can do in regards to the policy, such as opting out of certain features.
