AI Advances a Threat to Health Data Privacy, New Study Says


A recent study from the University of California in Berkeley showed that current laws may be insufficient to prevent artificial intelligence from posing a threat to the privacy of health data.

Research leader Anil Aswani said that artificial intelligence can identify individuals by learning daily patterns in step data like that collected by activity trackers, smartwatches and smartphones, and correlating it to demographic data.

Aswani added that stripping all the identifying information will not protect the individual as much as expected, since someone else can come back and put it all back together if they have the right kind of information.
