Specialist training to help you understand and manage the privacy risks found in AI, algorithmic and automated decision-making systems.
Why this module is important
From setting insurance premiums to deciding who gets a home loan, from predicting the risk of a person re-offending to more accurately diagnosing disease, algorithmic systems – especially those turbo-charged by AI – have the ability to re-shape our lives. As the use of algorithmic systems increases, so too does the need for appropriate auditing, assessment, and review.
But where should one start, when assessing the privacy considerations raised by algorithmic systems? What should an Algorithmic Impact Assessment include, look for, or test against?
This module offers a framework for assessing projects involving AI or algorithms, which cuts through the technical jargon.
By examining the four stages of an algorithmic system – design, data, development and deployment – we can not only identify the risks to avoid, but also start to explore the positive features to build in, to make an algorithmic system trustworthy.
What this module covers
On completion of this module, you will have gained an understanding of:
- Why some AI projects raise privacy risks
- The legal and ethical challenges created by algorithmic systems
- Different types of bias to watch out for, and
