AI could constantly scan the internet for data privacy violations, a quicker, easier way to enforce compliance

Data privacy regulations are being adopted to protect internet users. Today, humans need to read those rules to ensure compliance. New research suggests machines could interpret them in real time.

These technologies will enable companies to make sure their services comply with privacy laws and also help governments identify in real time those companies that violate consumers’ privacy rights.

This technology can also help individuals get a quick snapshot of their rights and responsibilities with respect to the private data they share with companies. Once machines can quickly interpret long, complex privacy policies, people will be able to automate many mundane compliance activities that are done manually today. They may also be able to make those policies more understandable to consumers.

Google tells facial recognition startup Clearview AI to stop scraping photos

Following Twitter, Google and YouTube have become the latest companies to send a cease-and-desist letter to Clearview AI, the startup behind a controversial facial recognition program that more than 600 police departments across North American use.

Google has demanded Clearview stop scraping YouTube videos for its database, as well as delete any photos it has already collected. “Clearview secretly collected image data of individuals without their consent, and in violation of rules explicitly forbidding them from doing so,” Google said.

Welfare surveillance system violates human rights, Dutch court rules 

A Dutch court has ordered the immediate halt of an automated surveillance system for detecting welfare fraud because it violates human rights, in a judgment likely to resonate well beyond the Netherlands.

The case was seen as an important legal challenge to the controversial but growing use by governments around the world of artificial intelligence (AI) and risk modelling in administering welfare benefits and other core services.

Chicago police using controversial Clearview AI facial recognition tool that taps photos from Facebook, other sites

The Chicago Police Department is using a controversial facial recognition tool that allows investigators to search an image of unknown suspects to see if it matches a database of three billion photos lifted from websites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter — a technology privacy advocates say is so ripe for abuse that cops should stop using it immediately.

Critics say Clearview AI’s software is an invasive overreach because it grabs the photos without the consent of those pictured or even the websites that post them. But Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said facial recognition software like Clearview adds “jet fuel” to the department’s ability to identify and locate suspects.

EU seeks ‘clear criteria’ for use of biometric AI on mass scale

There should be “clear criteria” in the future mass-scale rollout of Biometric Identification Systems in the EU, a recently leaked draft of the EU’s Artificial Intelligence strategy reveals.

The document, an update on an earlier leaked version, has also scrapped the idea of a temporary ban on facial recognition technologies in public spaces.

The document notes that the lack of information about the use of biometric identification systems prohibits the Commission from making a broad analysis of the implications of this technology, which analyses a person’s physical features for computational purposes.

The 5 Biggest Cybersecurity Trends In 2020 Everyone Should Know About

More and more of our vital infrastructure is coming online and vulnerable to digital attacks, data breaches involving the leak of personal information are becoming more frequent and bigger, and there’s an increasing awareness of political interference and state-sanctioned cyberattacks.

Here’s what will be top of the agenda when it comes to cybersecurity over the coming year:

  1. Artificial intelligence (AI) will play an increasing role in both cyber-attack and defense
  2. Political and economic divisions between east and west lead to increased security threats
  3. Political interference increasingly common and increasingly sophisticated
  4. The cybersecurity skills gap continues to grow
  5. Vehicle hacking and data theft increases

In China’s digital courts, judges are AI and verdicts come via chat app

Artificial-intelligence judges, cybercourts and verdicts delivered on chat apps — welcome to China’s brave new world of justice.

China’s digitalisation efforts include a “mobile court” offered on popular social media platform WeChat that has already handled more than 3 million legal cases or other judicial procedures since its launch in March, according to the Supreme People’s Court.

Optus opens privacy can of worms with programmable voice play

Bringing an assistant into the phone calls of customers to help with a restaurant booking is an idea fraught with privacy concerns.

Australian telco Optus introduced internally a live-transcription service that captures the phone call interaction between customers and a call centre officer.
