This panel will explore the data science behind ML and AI. Along with privacy experts discussing ethical considerations, there is a need for general understanding of the data science that potentially makes ML/AI qualitatively different from prior technology re: privacy concerns. This “tech primer” will consider these terms, along with discussing concepts such as neural networks, supervised/unsupervised learning, derived data, and others; and related P+S issues.
