Panel Description

We are bringing together experts across the privacy, mobility, and civic space to discuss the challenges of transforming—and enforcing—transportation regulations through the use of code and algorithms. This panel aims to build upon the issue as framed by the ITIF report  released earlier this year, which introduced multiple potential frameworks for integrating automated enforcement mechanisms in the transportation industry. At CPDP, we hope to reexamine this issue with the specific lens of privacy and data protection and ultimately, identify concrete steps cities and mobility operators can take to share data responsibly. Specific questions we hope to address in this panel:

  • What is the proper role of governments in regulating mobility companies, and further, individual users of those companies?
  • What obligations do cities have under the GDPR in the context of collecting data from the private sector? What does this mean in practice?
  • Where does automated regulation meet surveillance? Does one enable the other? Is one a use case of the other? What are the ethical considerations?
  • How can cities demonstrate preparedness to ingest large volumes of data? How do we develop privacy and security standards that can be feasibly adopted by both the public and private sector?
