Description

As stated in the Global Privacy Assembly's (GPA) Declaration on Ethics and Data Protection in Artificial Intelligence, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) engages significant privacy, data protection and ethical concerns affecting both individuals and society at large that may involve the curtailing fundamental rights and freedoms. The Declaration calls on continued attention, vigilance, and accountability of the whole chain of actors and stakeholders, including supervisory authorities, individuals and other parties as appropriate, on the potential outcomes and impacts of AI systems. The objective of this session is to present a general framework for identifying the privacy risks posed by AI systems, including the primary risks of AI systems to individuals' privacy based on internationally recognized privacy principles, and an overall strategy to help prevent harm to individuals and society

We will open the floor for questions and interventions from both onsite and online IGF participants. Online chat and functionality on the video conferencing platform that is used will allow for verbal and written interventions at the session. A balance will be sought to engage both virtual and onsite attendees, potentially with questions being asked back from panelists to participants with regard to their experiences with AI and privacy.

Targets: AI is used to make automated decisions about individuals, both by government institutions and private-sector organizations. The processing of personal data to allow such decisions to be made can have impacts on human rights, and raise questions of equality, fairness, justice, accountability, and inclusivity. This session will explore the various risks that AI poses to these concepts from a privacy perspective, including the relationship between automated decision-making and protecting fundamental freedoms (16.10), and developing accountable and transparent institutions (16.6). The session and the risk framework around which it will be framed, also focuses at its core the promotion of the rule of law and equal access to justice (16.3).

Key Takeaways (* deadline 2 hours after session)

Privacy and data protection are central to the governance of AI, and all stakeholders in the AI supply chain have a role to play in upholding privacy rights.

Call to Action (* deadline 2 hours after session)

Reinforcing the role of national and sub-national privacy authorities, they should be engaged and consulted by national governments and international institutions as AI frameworks are created.
