Algorithms impact large segments of modern life, from the media we’re shown to the opportunities we are offered. Huge amounts of personal data underpin these algorithms, raising the question of how privacy can exist in such a world. In the first half of his talk, Blase Ur will draw from fields including computer science, law, art, and philosophy in tracing the relationship between privacy and technological advances, from the rise of instantaneous photography in the 19th century to the rise of ChatGPT in recent months. Later, he will discuss examples from his group’s research that demonstrate how some of the same technologies that cause privacy violations can be repurposed to enable richer privacy transparency and accountability. These approaches leverage consumers’ right to access personal data companies hold about them, a right strengthened by recent privacy laws.
