Agents in a privacy-preserving world

Edgar Galván, Joaquín García-Alfaro, Guillermo Navarro-Arribas, Vicenç Torra
2021 Transactions on Data Privacy  
Agents should be able to reason about our privacy requirements, and may collaborate (or not) with other agents to help us to achieve our privacy goals.  ...  Mobile devices and the internet of things make keeping our live private still more difficult. Agent technologies can play a fundamental role to provide privacy-aware solutions.  ...  In addition, • agents must advise the users on different privacy related questions. Agents will be able to make learned decisions on the transmissions, both with respect to timing and content.  ...

Agent EXPRI: Licence to Explain [chapter]

Francesca Mosca, Ştefan Sarkadi, Jose M. Such, Peter McBurney
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Online social networks are known to lack adequate multiuser privacy support. In this paper we present EXPRI, an agent architecture that aims to assist users in managing multi-user privacy conflicts.  ...  Such techniques provide the agent with the cognitive process that is necessary for explainability.  ...  However, some solution-concepts, like argumentation-based models, make it easier than others to meet the explainability requirement.  ...

Contextual Integrity and Privacy Enforcing Norms for Virtual Communities

Yann Krupa, Laurent Vercouter
2010 Multi-Agent Logics, Languages, and Organisations Federated Workshops  
Most approaches take into account a sensitivity level or a "privacy circle": the information is said to be private or public and to be constrained to a given group of agents, e.g. "my friends".  ...  This framework is part of an ongoing work aiming at applying social control to agents that handle the information, so that malicious agents are excluded from the system.  ...  If the agent agrees with every primitive in the argument, then he can propagate the punishment message and punish the culprit by revising its trust.  ...
