Re: "Infobesity"
<Will introducing random noise into personal data collection efforts really be enough to satisfy privacy rights concerns? > @mhhf1ve good question. I think it may not suffice for EU standards, though. At the very least, the people living under its protection would have the right to object to their data being used in that way. That's what I infer from the way the rights are laid out here: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/policies/data-protection-reform/data-protection-regulation/

 


It lists the rights of the data subject, that is the individual whose personal data is being processed. These strengthened rights give individuals more control over their personal data, including through:
  • the need for the individual's clear consent to the processing of personal data
  • easier access by the subject to his or her personal data
  • the rights to rectification, to erasure and 'to be forgotten'
  • the right to object, including to the use of personal data for the purposes of 'profiling'
  • the right to data portability from one service provider to another

It also lays down the obligation for controllers (those who are responsible for the processing of data) to provide transparent and easily accessible information to data subjects on the processing of their data.

Re: "Infobesity"
I'm wondering how Differential Privacy tech will circumvent the privacy concerns with massive data collection and data mining efforts. Netflix's second $1MM challenge was a bust in part because it was too easy to de-anonymize the data. Will introducing random noise into personal data collection efforts really be enough to satisfy privacy rights concerns? It's not clear yet, and it may never be....

Re: "Infobesity"
@mhhf1ve the interesting thing is that passing on that info to marketers can actually violate law in the EU where data privacy rights are considered a lot more important than they see to be on this side of the Atlantic. That gets tricky when you have businesses sending data from one side to the other. Previously Safe Harbour was supposed to reassure people that their privacy rights were protected, but a suit against Facebook in Ireland blew that out of the water. Now we have the Privacy Shield as the mechanism to be used to show legal compliance. But only time will tell if it will hold up.

Re: "Infobesity"
The "1984" world of constant surveillance is pretty much a reality now with all the cameras and GPS sensors that can track everyone's movements. If all the data collected is just going toward netflix recommendations, that wouldn't be a problem... but...

@Ariella, I like it - that would have a more intelligent structure.

Re: "Infobesity"
@mhhf1ve perhaps, while some people are delighted at personalization, some people find it a tad creepy to consider how much they are being tracked to come up with such results.

Re: "Infobesity"
> "Netflix or Amazon recommendations..."

Hm. The ideal of really good Netflix recommendations hasn't really become a reality. Even after Netflix's $1MM challenge, they never implemented the winning recommendation algorithm.. and the whole idea of desirable personalized recommendations seems to have faded away? Perhaps privacy concerns for recommendations being too good get in the way....

Re: "Infobesity"
@Dhagar interesting idea, though I wouldn't want to just let Google or Facebook style algorithms decide which content is more worth seeing. Perhaps it would have to be personalized to individual tastes like Netflix or Amazon recommendations.

Re: "Infobesity"
@Ariella, very true.  This whole point of Infobesity is right on target.  Maybe there should be variable rates for the quality and usefulness of info.
