Canadian Privacy Commissioner calls out e-proctoring software


In a report, the Privacy Coimmissioner of Canada has said that online proctoring tools used to conduct remote exams fail to get sufficiently free, clear, and individual consent from students. Besides this overreach, the report identifies factors that may trigger false alerts and errors in the biometric tools incorporated into the software. The report ends by calling for reflection on how to identify uses of AI that should be prohibited.
