Public Health Surveillance, AI Bias, and Risks to Privacy in the Fight Against COVID-19
April 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
To help fight COVID-19, U.S. tech companies have recently announced efforts to leverage public health surveillance, including tracking the spread of the coronavirus using Bluetooth-enabled devices. Artificial intelligence (AI) and other digital tools have the capability to capture biometrics, location data, and other indicators of infection. Given these existing and potential uses of AI, what are the privacy implications for the collection of such health data?
On April 21, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a webinar discussion on the existing and potential use of digital public health surveillance tools, particularly AI.
