As you may already know, Data Privacy Day, also known in Europe as Data Protection Day, is globally recognized each year on January 28th. Some have now even extended this to a weeklong celebration. The event’s purpose is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices.
VMblog has spoken with experts from a number of companies, and they had a lot to say about this very timely and important topic.
Aron Brand, CTO of CTERA
“2022 has brought about a quantum leap in the capabilities of generative AI algorithms, with the ability to create media such as images, videos, and text that are easily passable for real. This technology has the potential to revolutionize industries and change the way we consume media.
However, it also brings about powerful concerns surrounding the ability of these models to generate fake voice, images, and footage. As we move forward, it’s important to consider the privacy implications of this technology and work towards solutions to prevent its abuse. This may include government regulations, industry standards, and the development of technology to detect and remove fake content. It’s also important to educate the public about the potential privacy dangers of deepfakes and other forms of generated content.”
