Aspen Panel Sneak Peek: Privacy, Big Data and AI: US v EU v China?


Join us in Aspen August 19 – 21 to find out.

Privacy, Big Data, and AI: US v EU v China?  The US, EU, and China approach privacy differently. Advances in artificial intelligence and related technologies, meanwhile, require access to large amounts of data and the ability to use it in creative and unforeseen ways. How much do regulations and attitudes regarding privacy affect innovation, particularly in artificial intelligence? If regional approaches to privacy match residents’ preferences, how should policy respond to differences in AI and other technological innovation?
