    Talk Title: Human/System Co-design to Protect Data Privacy

    Abstract: Privacy is changing how we build computing systems. Recent regulations, such as General Data Protection Regulation, California Consumer Privacy Act, Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, require developers to offer greater privacy protections. However, developers struggle to turn these high-level privacy principles into low-level code implementation.

    The primary cause of this difficulty is that privacy is a multi-stakeholder issue: developers want to achieve more functionality and productivity; users want more control with lower effort; regulators wish to audit systems with limited resources and do not want to stifle innovation; finally, system deployments need to remain proprietary and efficient.

    In this talk, I will present two systems to illustrate that these Human/System requirements can jointly inform system design up-front and not be afterthoughts. I will describe (1) applying human/system co-design for data minimization, a foundational privacy principle in modern privacy regulation, and (2) how user and other stakeholder experience is transformed in co-designed systems. I will conclude with plans to create a virtuous cycle ecosystem where building trustworthy systems is rewarded, and developers compete to guarantee greater user protection, not less.

    Biography: Haojian Jin is a final-year Ph.D. candidate in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Jason Hong and Swarun Kumar. His research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction, privacy, and mobile systems. His work has been recognized with a UbiComp Gaetano Borriello Outstanding Student Award, Research Highlights at Communications of the ACM and GetMobile, and best paper awards at Ubicomp and ACM Computing Reviews.
