We are bringing together experts across the privacy, mobility, and civic space to discuss the challenges of transforming—and enforcing—transportation regulations through the use of code and algorithms. This panel aims to build upon the issue as framed by the ITIF report released earlier this year, which introduced multiple potential frameworks for integrating automated enforcement mechanisms in the transportation industry. At CPDP, we hope to reexamine this issue with the specific lens of privacy and data protection and ultimately, identify concrete steps cities and mobility operators can take to share data responsibly. Specific questions we hope to address in this panel:What is the proper role of governments in regulating mobility companies, and further, individual users of those companies?What obligations do cities have under the GDPR in the context of collecting data from the private sector? What does this mean in practice?Where does automated regulation meet surveillance? Does one enable the other? Is one a use case of the other? What are the ethical considerations?How can cities demonstrate preparedness to ingest large volumes of data? How do we develop privacy and security standards that can be feasibly adopted by both the public and private sector?Autonomous and highly automated vehicles are likely the first product that will bring AI to the masses in a life-changing way. They rely on AI for a variety of uses: from mapping, perception and prediction, to self-driving technologies. Their promise is great: increasing the safety and convenience of our cities and roads. But so are the challenges that come with it, from solving life and death questions to putting in place a framework that works for the protection of fundamental rights of drivers, passengers and everyone physically around them. This panel proposes a EU-US comparative perspective to discuss essential questions. Are existing legal frameworks well-equipped to deal with these challenges? How much data and what type of data runs through all systems of an autonomous vehicle? What rights are affected? What ethical considerations might play into decision-making algorithms around accidents?How are highly automated and autonomous vehicles using AI?How are regulators around the world managing the data and AI used in highly automated and autonomous vehicles?What are the benefits of autonomous vehicles and what are the risks to individual rights? How can they be balanced?What lessons might be learned from this space for other applications of AI? (regulatory or otherwise)of businesses. In this session we turn the tables. Helen Dixon, Data Protection Commissioner for Ireland, will be asking the questions. The academics will be in the hot seat providing direct and complete answers. Are their theories sound and coherent? Do they influence the world outside the ivory tower? Did their writings withstand the test of time?The gap between the theory and practice of privacy and data protectionThe role for higher education in developing a privacy and data protection workforceThe implications of privacy as a fundamental right, as trust and as a techno-social safety valveDifferences and similarities between privacy and data protection scholarship in the US and EUCheck out the panels and events FPF will be participating in below.
