OFBW31 - Engaging People in Data Privacy

In this talk I will look to the future; what will sociotechnical transformation that human societies are going through throw up next? What new forms of data will present themselves and how will we use them? I will advance the thesis that humans and their data are becoming increasingly tightly bound and that the legal, administrative and social separation of personhood and data about those persons will be crease to be useful or desirable. I will present examples to show that we are already some way down this track. Such a thesis throws up a supreme challenge to privacy; what could privacy even mean mean in a society where our digital selves are as important as our physical selves and our social selves straddle both? The answer, I will argue, lies in rebooting our thinking about privacy to move from confidentiality based models to autonomy based ones. Given such a rethinking the sociotechnical transformation presents an opportunity as much as a threat.
