AI BASED RECOMMENDATION SYSTEMS: PROFITS VS. PRIVACY

Friday, May 10th, 02:30 pm to 03:00 pm

Hall A1

AI / MACHINE LEARNING

Recommendation Systems are the driving force behind the multi hundred billion dollar Ads industry dominated by Google, Facebook etc. As recommendations systems become more powerful with larger amounts of data, concerns have arisen about role of customer privacy. Legislations, such as GDPR, address this in some ways but create new challenges of their own. This panel discusses how we may strike a balance between the goals of profitiability and privacy so that we can enable both a vibrant economic model disrupting the inefficient legacy ads industry and ensuring that there is a "reasonable respect" for user's privacy.
