Data and COVID-19

Privacy and Security and Artificial Intelligence

Event Details

Presented by the Berkman Klein Center

Data will play a crucial role in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. Data can also raise questions and concerns. How can we respect privacy rights in an age of public health surveillance? How will large data holders and governments use the information we report?

This discussion will explore three areas of opportunity and concern: contact tracing programs, including AI surveillance; the role of big data holders in COVID-19 efforts; and the impact of misinformation/disinformation.
