Protecting Privacy from & using AI While Sharing Photos
Social networking services can use AI algorithms to analyze photos, and combine results with other information that they have collected over time, to extract much more information than what we want to give them. Further, such information might be shared with advertisers and other parties. I will introduce this problem, and have a brief discussion with participants to get a broader view of this problem.
I will then describe two possible solutions that I have been working on the past year. Adding artifacts or effects to photos can degrade the ability of AI algorithms to detect and recognize content in photos. AI algorithms built into smartphone apps can remove information that we do not want to share. These will be explained with a non-technical audience in mind. I will conclude the session with a brief discussion on how to proceed with these approaches for better privacy.
