Simon Davies (Director, Privacy International) presents an overview of the key privacy risks, especially as regards the Internet, which have emerged in the Web 3.0 era.
This seminar is the first in the OxPILS series "Mending the Tangled Web? Informational Privacy 3.0". This series has been generously made possible with funding from a Joint Programme between the European Union and the Council of Europe. (The views expressed are those of the individual speakers only). The talk argued that the current data protection framework is struggling to cope with the mass and diffuse nature of data processing which has now become ubiquitous. One way forward may be to develop and entrench technology with build-in privacy protections such as cryto-algorithms at every level.
