Building consumer trust and overcoming privacy barriers with on-device AI

New data and privacy legislation is helping to protect and give consumers what they want: less irrelevant marketing junk. However, with less access to online behaviours and little understanding of offline personas, it is becoming more difficult for brands to understand their consumer needs.  In order for brands to be able to communicate relevant and personalised content, a middle ground needs to be met.

How on-chip AI helps GDPR compliance

Given the repercussions of getting GDPR compliance wrong, businesses could be forgiven for not wanting to collect any data about individuals at all. But a flow of data between businesses and consumers is essential and, whilst it can be minimised to just what is necessary to provide service, it cannot be avoided.

Mind reading: is no data safe?

According to a report in The South China Post, Chinese government backed organisations are using mind reading technology to help improve productivity. If all the AI is doing is learning to read the signs in a way that comes naturally to us humans, it may be scary, but not because of the threat to our human right to privacy. If the data is collected and stored, it might be a different matter.

Schools are using AI to track their students

Any US school that receives federal funding is required to have an internet-safety policy. As school-issued tablets and Chromebook laptops become more commonplace, schools must install technological guardrails to keep their students safe.

While some simply block inappropriate websites, others turn to Safety Management Platforms (SMPs) that use natural-language processing to scan through the millions of words typed on school computers. If a word or phrase might indicate bullying or self-harm behavior, it gets surfaced for a team of humans to review. But even in an age of student suicides and school shootings, when do security precautions start to infringe on students’ freedoms?

Fighting cybercrime with A.I.

Cybersecurity start-up Darktrace, which uses artificial intelligence to fight cybercrime against corporations. Its artificial intelligence takes inspiration from something distinctly organic: the way the human immune system fights illness. Its machine learning understands normal patterns of behavior of every user and every device connected to a corporate network.
