With so much of AI artefacts, programmes, tools and technologies raising concerns, how much of AI and algorithms underpinning the online world is designed with data-privacy and data ethics as a development philosophy? This guest lecture aims to deliver a ‘Your Right to Privacy Online’ tutorial developed as a free informal education resource from an EU funded project, CSI-COP, concerned with fundamental AI ethics: extent of online tracking.
