A team of scientists, led by Carnegie Mellon University, used artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to crawl 7,000 of the most popular websites' privacy policies and identify those that contain language about data collection and use, third-party sharing, data retention and user choice, among other privacy issues. The project website enables people to navigate machine-annotated privacy policies and jump directly to statements of interest to them, including those often buried deep in the text of privacy policies.
