Eran will guide panel members from Google, Inc. and Stanford Law School through a discussion specifically delving into regulation and privacy issues surrounding the use of drones, robots, and artificial intelligence. Among the topics to be covered: mandating (as a legal standard) use of FIPS-approved algorithms contained in validated cryptographic modules; packing drones and (small) robots with lightweight block ciphers (SIMON and SPECK); protecting transportation centric ontologies with block chains; and adopting from NIST SP 800-111. Together, they will identify and develop internet, mobile, cloud, and social media best practices. The 2016 Conference is co-sponsored by the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, the Stanford Center for E-Commerce, its Center of E-commerce, and the ACC.
