Technology and Public Health Perspectives on Private Automated Contact Tracing
Ron Rivest, Daniel Weitzner, Louise Ivers, Israel Soibelman, and Marc Zissman invite you to a three-hour mini-conference (the first in a series of mini-conferences to foster a public dialogue on private automated contact tracing technology) to provide technologists, privacy experts, and public health officials with a forum to discuss how contact tracing can be used to slow the spread of COVID-19, and how privacy-preserving automated contact tracing can augment manual contact tracing.
The aims of this conference are to develop an understanding of how automated contact tracing can augment manual contact tracing and to identify key questions to resolve in the course of development, including the complex Bluetooth phenomenologies at play, and how automated contact tracing can best be achieved in a privacy-preserving manner.
To help address these topics, ImPACT will begin with remarks from the Governor of Massachusetts, a state that is already implementing large-scale, manual contact tracing. The conference will feature remarks from leading experts in academia, industry, and government.
