Title: Artificial Intelligence a Threat to Privacy

Artificial Intelligence a Threat to Privacy
Privacy is the state of keeping something or
someone protected or hidden from others. And no
one would ever want anyone to access their
personal information. But with the advent of
recent technological advances privacy has become
a pertinent issue. Data mining, AI and other
advanced Internet based techniques pose a threat
to privacy and individuals have started to lose
control over personal data. 21st century has
become the era of Big Data and sophisticated
technology. And this all concerns everyone as the
meaning and value of privacy is a subject of
large debate. The increasing power of AI is
muddling the clarity and agreement between
privacy which is giving birth to data breach and
security issues. This article focuses on risk
artificial intelligence pose on privacy and what
future holds. AI brings the ability to analyze,
combine, and gather data from diverse sources,
thus increasing information assembling
capabilities of social actors that use this
technology. The impact of AI on privacy is
massive, which is the reason we need to make
people aware about the issues. To know the
issues and how Artificial Intelligence is a risk
to our privacy consider reading this article
further. Artificial Intelligence and
Privacy What makes AI vital is its information
gathering speed, scale, and automation. The
speed at which AI does computation is faster than
humans and it can be increased by adding more
hardware. AI fundamentally is designed to use
large data sets for analysis and is the only way
to process reasonable amount of data in less
time. artificial intelligence machine learning
can take care of a task without supervision
which helps to improve analysis
efficiency. Undoubtedly these characteristics
are mind blowing but there is a downside to
this. All these features affect privacy in number
of ways. Ways in which AI affects Privacy Data
Manipulation From computer software to smart home
applications all have certain features that
makes them vulnerable to data manipulation by AI.
Things get worse when people keep on connecting
more devices without knowing how their software
and devices share, process, and generate data.
And the potential for data manipulation keeps on
increasing as we become more reliant on digital
technology. Identification and Tracking AI is
used to watch, find and track individuals across
various devices, be it at any public place, home
or work. This means even your personal data is
anonymized, so that it can become part of big
data. But AI is capable of de-anonymizing this

data based on reading collected from other
devices which means thin line between person and
non-personal data is revoked and nothing is
personal for AI.
artificial intelligence machine learning is
increasingly using two identification methods,
voice, and facial recognition. And both these
methods have the potential to compromise
anonymity in public space. To understand it
better, lets take example of a law enforcement
agency who uses facial and voice recognition to
find individuals without upholding a proper legal
procedure on basis of suspicion thus
circumventing what law asks for. Guess AI can
use machine learning to gather or guess sensitive
information from non- sensitive forms of data.
For instance, someones typing pattern can be
used to infer their emotional and mental state
such as anxiety, confidence, nervousness, and
sadness. Even more, AI is capable of predicting a
persons health, ethnic identity, political
views, from that collected data such as location
data, activity logs, and similar
standards. Outlining AI is not only able to
gather information, it can also use collected
information to sort, classify, evaluate, and
rank individuals. This is often done without
users consent and no one can challenge the
outcome of such tasks. Most common example of it
is Chinas social scoring system. Also Read

Risk from Malicious Sources? How to Protect Your
Privacy from AI? For individuals privacy is a big
concern because they are not familiar with the
security measures that will help them to stay
protected. Therefore, to make things clear, we
have listed certain steps that will help anyone
reduce the risk and fight increasing data mining
Use Anonymous Networks to browse the web
To stay protected and keep data privacy intact
online users can use anonymous networks like
I2P, Freenet or ToR. These networks support
end-to-end encryption, meaning transmitted data
is secure and it cant be intercepted. Use
Open-Source Web Browsers Web browsers plays key
role in safeguarding your privacy. Open source
browser such as Firefox can easily be check for
security issues while Chrome is exclusive.
Therefore, choosing Firefox, Midori, Seamonkey
browsers is an excellent choice. Use Open-Source
Operating Systems Like open source web browsers,
we have open source operating system. To protect
data from being collected switching to them is
clever. Unlike Apple and Microsoft who uses
variety of backdoors to collect user data Linux
is safe to use. Use Android mobile device We all
know smartphones are greatest risk to privacy,
but we cannot stop using. Therefore, to control
the use of data using Android devices is a smart
choice. Because Microsoft and Apple open-source
software. But this doesnt circumvent the fact
that smartphones are risk to privacy. Must Read

Development Conclusion Modern technologies like
AI have brought huge changes in different arenas
of our life. The vast amount of data collected
and analyzed using these tolls helps to tackle
social ills that previously had no solutions.
Like every good thing has some cons, AI too have
a dark side. Data collected by AI can be used
against us and pose risk to our personal data.
Loss of privacy is just one example of how
digital technologies work to our disadvantage.
However, if learn about these technologies and
their impact on our life we can acquire ways to
defend ourselves from being exploited.
