This program is aimed at regulators, policymakers, legislators and staff who want to more deeply understand the data driven technologies that are front of mind for data protection discussions.  Structured as an interactive lesson, technology experts will present a training course designed to equip data protection experts with a foundation to understand how data is deployed for machine learning, genetics, biometrics, connected cars, health research, facial recognition and ad tech.

This inaugural session will focus on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.  Attendees will be provided in advance with a copy of "The Privacy Experts Guide to Machine Learning" and will join leading machine learning experts for presentations geared at bringing the details of the technology to an audience without an in depth computer science background.  In addition to a primer on the basics of the field, issues of particular consequence to policymakers such as fairness, bias, and data minimization will be examined.

The organizers intend to offer additional sessions over a year, covering a range of technical topics. Sessions will be provided in person and will support remote participation. A certificate will be provided to those completing the full course.

Time: 14:30 – 15:50 (refreshments included)
