Seminar: Understanding the Tensions and Convergences between Privacy and Ethics for the Responsible Development of Machine Learning

Informations sur l'événement


26 May 2021


13:30 - 15:00



Machine learning models are now ubiquitous in our society. However, their widespread use raises important privacy and ethical issues, especially if their predictions are applied in areas where they can have a significant impact on individuals. To understand how best to responsibly integrate privacy and ethics into the development of machine learning models, we must first have a clear vision of how these concepts interact. The goal of this seminar is precisely to discuss this issue using an interdisciplinary approach that lies at the intersection of computer science, law, and ethics.

The main results discussed are the result of a project funded by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada in the 2020-2021 call.
