Arteaga, Coah., July 9, 2024. The Autonomous University of Coahuila hosted the “The Route to Privacy” conference, an initiative of the National Institute for Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI), the National Transparency System (SNT) and the Coahuila Institute for Access to Public Information (ICAI), a project that focused on the topic “Artificial intelligence, challenges and opportunities for the protection of personal data.”

The main objective of this event was to provide participants with the knowledge and practical tools to ensure regulatory compliance and the protection of personal data in a context increasingly influenced by artificial intelligence.

The event took place in the Multipurpose Room II of the Arteaga University City Campus, where the event was chaired virtually by the president commissioner of the INAI, Adrián Alcalá Méndez; in person and representing the governor of Coahuila, Manolo Jiménez Salinas, the head of the Secretariat of Oversight and Accountability of Coahuila, Elma Marisol Martínez González; the commissioners of the INAI, Josefina Román Vergara and Norma Julieta del Río Venegas.

Also present were the IFOEM commissioner and head of the Personal Data Protection Commission, Luis Gustavo Parra Noriega; the rector of the UAdeC, Octavio Pimentel Martínez; the commissioner president of the Instituto Coahuilense de Acceso a la Información Pública (ICAI), Dulce María Fuentes Mancillas; the ICAI commissioner, Javier Diez de Urdanivia de Valle; and the ICAI commissioner, Bertha Icela Mata Ortiz.

The head of the Secretariat of Oversight and Accountability of Coahuila, Elma Marisol Martínez González, highlighted the importance of raising awareness about the protection of personal data in a context of rapid technological advances and the growing influence of artificial intelligence.

He added that the Government of Coahuila is committed to transparency and the protection of personal data, recalling that last May the Governor presented the State Development Plan 2023-2029, which includes government objectives and citizen concerns collected in various regional forums.

In her speech, the INAI commissioner, Josefina Román Vergara, thanked the rector, Octavio Pimentel Martínez, for receiving the participants of the INAI Conference, highlighting that universities are not only centers of knowledge, but also places where awareness is fostered in young people.

She stressed the importance of privacy and the protection of personal data, along with access to information, and welcomed the discussion on artificial intelligence and its impact on the protection of personal data and during the INAI Conference as a space to reflect and advance the institutionalization of data protection throughout the country.

For his part, the rector of the highest house of studies, Octavio Pimentel Martínez, said that for the University, serving as the venue for the event is a crucial platform to examine the challenges and opportunities that Artificial Intelligence (AI) brings with it in terms of privacy and protection of personal data.

Pimentel Martínez stated that facing these challenges in an ethical and responsible manner is a call to society to be at the forefront in the creation of policies and practices that mitigate the risks associated with AI, hence the University’s commitment to transparency, access to public information and the protection of personal data.

In her speech, the President Commissioner of the Instituto Coahuilense de Acceso a la Información Pública (ICAI), Dulce María Fuentes Mancillas, thanked Coahuila for the opportunity to actively participate in this joint effort for the protection of personal data and expressed her satisfaction that the ICAI is hosting this event within the framework of the Institute’s anniversary.

Fuentes Mancillas stressed the need to be cautious when using artificial technologies when handling personal data, since their misuse can compromise both the privacy and identity of people. He acknowledged the usefulness of these new technologies, but warned about the blind trust that can be generated due to the simplicity with which they operate.

The activities of the Conference continued with the keynote lecture “Artificial Intelligence: Challenges and Opportunities for the Protection of Personal Data”, given by Dr. Gonzalo Sosa Barreto, Data Protection Coordinator at the Personal Data Regulation and Control Unit (AGESIC) of Uruguay, as well as a panel with experts entitled “Artificial Intelligence: Challenges and Opportunities for the Protection of Personal Data”.
