ACM Distinguished Speakers Program:  talks by and with technology leaders and innovators

Foretold Futures from Digital Footprints: Artificial Intelligence, Behavior Prediction, and Privacy

Speakers: Jennifer Golbeck
Topic(s): Artificial Language/Machine Learning,Computers and Society,Human Computer Interaction,Web Topics


For a few years, we have been developing algorithms to predict individual attributes like personality traits, political preferences, and demographics. More recently, we have shown that AI combined with social data can predict future behavior - before the users know what their actions will be. This talk will discuss the cutting edge of user attribute inference, discuss the applications of this work, and address the myriad of privacy concerns that these algorithms provoke.
