Abstract

Conversational agents open the world to new opportunities for human interaction and ubiquitous engagement. As their conversational abilities and knowledge has improved, these agents have begun to have access to an increasing variety of personally identifiable information and intimate details on their user base. This access raises crucial questions in light of regulations as robust as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This paper explores some of these questions, with the aim of defining relevant open issues in conversational agent design. We hope that this work can provoke further research into building agents that are effective at user interaction, but also respectful of regulations and user privacy.
