Request For Research Presentations For the PrivacyCon Conference
This presentation will provide an overview of a large-scale multi-disciplinary effort aimed at semi-automatically extracting website privacy policy statements ("annotations"). This work, which has been going on for a little over two years, has already produced a number of results and techniques. They range from machine learning, crowdsourcing and natural language processing techniques to user privacy preference and expectation models that can be used to simplify the presentation of privacy policies to users. Time permitting, we propose to also demo some of the tools developed by our project and discuss their implications on the future of notice and choice and on the analysis of privacy policies by organizations such as the FTC. Further details about this project, including a number of publications, are available at www.usableprivacy.org
