Website: Policy Reasoning: Game-Changing Promise and Present Challenges
When: November 6 2013
Where: Winslow 1140, RPI Campus, Troy, NY
Description:
Imagine a world in which contracts, laws, and policies about data usage are encoded and run directly in the systems they're meant to address. Would the NSA have collected phone metadata? Would Google have collected passwords? This talk will describe the gap between the current state of systems architecture and the policies and agreements which they are expected to enforce and envision the possible uses for such technology. It will also discuss work on policy language and reasoners to meet this need and the challenges still to be solved.
