Google and Apple Exposure Notifications: a talk between CS and Law with Carmela Troncoso (EPFL) and Tatiana Duarte (LSTS)

  • February 23, 2021

(Event) On Wednesday, 3 March 2021 (14:00-16:00 CET), ALTEP-DP invites Carmela Troncoso to provide a Computer Science perspective about the Exposure Notifications system and to engage on a dialogue with Tatiana Duarte, who will give a legal standpoint on the framework. The talk will be moderated by Laurence Diver (LSTS).

In April 2020, Google and Apple launched a joint-project that claimed to streamline the report of Covid-19 positive cases to the Health Authorities while complying with the right to data protection and to privacy. 

After many countries have adhered to the Exposure Notifications framework it is time to inquire the legal and technical architecture offered by Google and Apple.

This talk promoted by ALTEP-DP challenges law and computer science to a cross disciplinary dialog about Google and Apple infrastructure, where each field offers its perspective and asks questions to the other field, with the purpose of promoting a mutual understanding of their different languages.
