A Scientific Experiment on Privacy and AI Transparency

None
This session will conduct an experiment on the state of privacy and AI transparency in Internet. We will introduce a set of visual signs designed to replace current consent and privacy online forms (see https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-inform-users-intuitively-non-intrusively-rights-garcia-gasulla/). The experiment will engage participants with current consent and privacy forms of popular webpages to assess their accessibility and actual degree of transparency. This will be performed by participants, as they assign the proposed visual signs to popular websites. Discussions will be encouraged, to identify general tips (e.g., keywords to look for, how much effort it implies, form traps and how to avoid them, etc.). If the results are of interest, a scientific paper will be produced. All participants will be acknowledged in the paper, and participants who can actively contribute to the manuscript will be invited as co-authors.
