Algorithms and machine learning have brought us smart voice systems, driverless cars, and drone delivery systems. Your credit score, your job prospects, even your choice of a Friday night movie might all be determined by a computer program, all while your data is being collected. Society can benefit from this large-scale data exchange, for example, through medical research, economic forecasting, and urban planning. But what is happening to basic principles for the protection of personal information?

A panel of RAND experts will discuss the risks to privacy in the age of artificial intelligence.
