The development and deployment of AI systems and applications by public and private actors presents unique challenges for the right to privacy. This is primarily because AI applications rely on the collection and processing of massive amounts of data - potentially sensitive or personal data - that is often obtained through devices, online services, or even in public places without individuals’ knowledge or consent.
