The opportunities created by machine learning range across every sector of the economy and will impact every area of daily life. Better health care, safer transportation, greater efficiencies in manufacturing, retail, and online services are all already on the horizon. But concerns about the privacy impact, ethical consequences and real world harms of the technology are real and may lead to dangers large and small if not countered. FPF has convened a leading group of its members to consider priority areas for technologies and companies to address ML privacy and ethics concerns. Our AI and Machine Learning Working Group, composed of FPF member companies with an interest in AI and Machine Learning privacy and data management challenges, meets monthly to discuss various relevant issues regarding new updates, hear from experts regarding AI in the EU and under GDPR, the occurrence and defense against bias, and other timely topics.
