Our most recent Dialogues & Debates, on April 28, was titled “Trustworthy Technology in the Time of a Pandemic” and featured Berlin-based Mozilla Fellow Frederike Kaltheuner. As a Mozilla Fellow, Frederike is examining applications of AI systems that classify, judge, and evaluate people’s identities, feelings, and emotions, in order to uncover where and how such technology is currently deployed. Before joining Mozilla, Frederike was a director at Privacy International in London, where she led the organisation’s strategic work on corporate surveillance and emerging technology.
During the virtual Dialogues & Debates, Frederike answered questions on Twitter submitted by our community. Questions and answers addressed contact tracing, whether privacy and public health are a zero sum game, whether face masks thwart facial recognition tech, and far more.
