Tiffany Li is an attorney and Resident Fellow at Yale Law School’s Information Society Project. She frequently writes about the privacy implications of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and other disruptive technologies. We first learned about Tiffany after reading a paper by her and two colleagues on GDPR and the “right to be forgotten”. It’s an excellent introduction to the legal complexities of erasing memory from a machine intelligence.
In this first part of our discussion, we talk about GDPR’s “right to be forgotten” rule and its origins in a law suit brought against Google. Tiffany then explains how deleting personal data is more than just removing it from a folder or directory.
We learn that GDPR regulators haven’t yet addressed how to get AI algorithms to dynamically change their rules when the underlying data is erased. It’s a major hole in this new law’s requirements!
