I think we need to be more agile in evaluating/commenting on privacy
aspects of KI technologies; a year is a century in technology
development. A once-a-year evaluation is likely to fall somewhat
disruptively in the development cycle.
But Mark, your suggestion provokes a different thought. What about a
presentation at the beginning of a standards effort, with an update n
months later (n dependent on the privacy involvement of the technology
and the expected speed of development of the standard)? This has the
advantage of making privacy an important aspect to consider in KI
standards, and keeps us in the loop in a very useful way.
