Data Privacy: MIT Research Initiative will Address how Technology can Meet Public Policy Demands for Privacy

By Dick Weisinger

MIT has launched a new initiative called MIT Future of Data, Trust, and Policy that will research how technology can meet demands of public policy when handling personal and data and privacy.

Srini Devadas, professor at MIT, said that ‚Äúthe goal is to solve challenging problems of collaborative data analytics and machine learning where sharing data provides significant benefit to all participants, while also preserving strong privacy protections.”

The MIT Future of Data, Trust, and Privacy will attempt to address the following issues:

  • Database – Address governance issues and develop audit accountability tools that conform to GDPR and requirements from other regulatory bodies.
  • Cryptography – Develop better ways to use cryptography to protect personal information and preserve privacy when data is stored and used in computations.
  • AI and Machine Learning – Improve the handling of privacy in ML algorithms and be able meet legal requirements for explanation and bias assessment.
  • Data Portability – Improve the management, tracking, and accountability of data used in API communication.
  • Human-Computer Interaction – Evaluate how privacy policies affect user behavior and experience and provide feedback that can be used when designing systems and deciding policy.
