4:45 PM – 5 PM | Special Presentation: Transparency as The Bridge Between Privacy and Trust

Polina Zvyagina (Counsel at Airbnb specializing in Product Privacy)

Global privacy standards continue to focus on how automated processing of personal data via machine learning models impacts the rights, freedoms, and opportunities of individuals. Transparency is a legal requirement when automated decision-making occurs. In order to be transparent about its machine learning practices, a company must have a scalable way of tracking and auditing ADM. The most daunting technological challenges of our generation will include the intersection of artificial intelligence, science, and the law. We want to join other 21st Century companies in a proactive approach toward creating better practices around transparency, choice, and providing the support for safeguards to protect our stakeholders.

Kaelyn Lowmaster (Head of Research @ OWI), Steve Bankston (Director of Digital Identity @ Visa), Steve Kirkham (Co-Founder @ Berbix), Peggy Mangot (Senior Vice President @ Wells Fargo), and Karen Mok (Business Development @ Stripe)

In this session, we discuss the age-old conundrum of increasing friction to reduce fraud losses. Our panelists will discuss the new identity modalities and fraud prevention techniques that prevent bad actors from committing fraud while providing a seamless customer experience.
