The session ‘Redefining Ethics and Privacy in the age of AI’ provides a holistic view of the need to change the current outlook on privacy and ethics with the wide use and deployment of various machine learning and deep learning technologies. This session covers the ways in which privacy can be lost in machine learning and deep learning deployments and how differential privacy can be used as a privacy preserving mechanism. It also explores the possibility of using synthetic databases with privacy preservation. Lastly, it includes the ethical challenges that are currently being faced and will be faced in the future.

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Talk

The session consists of three main sub-sessions:

  1. Differential Privacy:
    This sub-session provides a deep dive into the areas where privacy can be lost in ML/ DL deployments and a brief overview of how differential privacy can be used as a privacy preserving mechanism. The objective of this sub- session is to introduce the need for a new way of thinking about privacy with the vast deployment of AI solutions, explore the different areas of privacy leakage and to introduce differential privacy as a method as privacy preservation. (About 5 minutes)

  2. Generative Adversarial Networks for Privacy:
    This sub-session talks about the possibilities of using Generative Adversarial Networks to create synthetic databases with privacy preservation. The objective of this sub-session is to introduce Generative Adversarial Networks and highlight the ways in which they can be used for generating differentially private synthetic databases. It also makes a comparison between the DP GAN and PATE GAN. (About 5 minutes)

  3. Ethics in AI:
    This sub-session deals with the current ethical challenges we face with the introduction of Artificial Intelligence and explores the future challenges that we might face. The objective of this sub-session is to talk about the ethical challenges that we currently face with the vast deployment of AI solutions, the ethical challenges that we would face in the future with the advent of Artificial General Intelligence and the moral status of machines. (About 5 minutes)

Learning Outcome

In this session we expect to educate people about the various privacy risks that Machine Learning and Deep Learning possess and how to mitigate the risks. We also want to ensure that people are aware of the ethical challenges we face and will face in the future.

The key takeaways for the attendees are:

  • The reasons why it is important to rethink what privacy means

  • The ways in which privacy can be compromised

  • How differential privacy prevents privacy leakage

  • How to use differential privacy as a privacy preserving mechanism in Machine Learning / Deep Learning

    applications

  • What are Generative Adversarial Networks

  • How to use differentially private Generative Adversarial Networks for privacy preservation

  • Ethics in AI

  • Ethics for Artificial General Intelligence

  • Moral Status of Machines

Target Audience

This is an intermediate talk. For this talk, it is expected that the audience has a basic understanding of Machine Learning/ AI. This session and the sub session focus on the privacy and security implications of the extensive AI in deploying solutions and for the same, it is expected that the audience has a background of AI/ Machine Learning. While the sub-section Ethics in AI is generic, in the sub-section of Generative Adversarial Networks for Privacy, a person who doesn’t know what neural networks are, will not be able to gain much from the session.

    Hello Saumya,

    Thanks for your time and efforts on the proposal! Could you answer the following questions to help the program committee understand your proposal better?

    • Are you planning to share demo(s) /use case(s) from your project work (industry-specific use cases)? Speaker's experience on the project helps people understand the concept better.
    • Did you use these concepts to help solve a particular problem? 
    • If yes, would you be sharing the Challenges faced in the implementation of the technique in your application and the workarounds?
    • Also, could you please elaborate more on the theme chosen for this proposal - "AI for Education"? 

    Thanks,

    Deepti

    Hi Saumya,

    Thanks for your proposal! Requesting you to update the Outline/Structure section of your proposal with a time-wise breakup of how you plan to use 20 mins for the topics you've highlighted?

    To help the program committee understand your presentation style, can you add some slides for your proposal and provide a link to your past recording or record a small 1-2 mins trailer of your talk and share the link to the same?

    Also, in order to ensure the completeness of your proposal, we suggest you go through the review process requirements.

    Thanks,

    Natasha
