  02:30-03:10pm Session 1: Privacy, Chaired by Dr Yang Lu, York St John University, UK
02:30-02:50pm The Privacy Risks of Contact Data
Professor Eerke Boiten, De Montfort University, UK
show more/less

 

Abstract: Contact data (the times that two people have been co-located) has come to the fore recently as the basis of Covid apps. Most of these have been implemented in a way to reduce privacy risks – but what are these risks? While it is tempting to view contact data as derived from location data, and transfer potential privacy risks from that side, this brief talk will consider a complementing and more foundational view.


Professor Eerke Boiten

Bio: Eerke Boiten is Professor of Cyber Security and Head of the School of Computer Science and Informatics at De Montfort University. After his PhD in the Netherlands, he worked at the University of Kent from 1995, and set up and led Kent’s interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security in 2012. Looking beyond just his own discipline, Eerke developed an interest in the policy sides of data, starting from a perspective of technical realism. He frequently engages in public debate in this area. In 2017, he moved to De Montfort University to lead the Cyber Technology Institute, which obtained NCSC/EPSRC Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research status in 2019. His current research projects are in privacy and cyber security.

02:50-03:10pm Corporate Surveillance: The Case for Transparency
Dr Isabel Wagner, De Montfort University, UK
show more/less

 

Abstract: News about privacy invasions, discrimination, and biases in big tech platforms are commonplace today, and big tech’s reluctance to disclose how they operate counteracts ideals of transparency, openness, and accountability. This talk explains what corporate surveillance is, how big tech tracks users through websites and apps, and how researchers can study big tech systems to make them more transparent.


Dr Isabel Wagner

Bio: Isabel Wagner is an Associate Professor in Computer Science with De Montfort University. Her research interests are in privacy and transparency, particularly metrics to quantify the effectiveness of privacy protections, privacy-enhancing technologies in smart cities, and web measurement to create transparency for corporate surveillance systems.

Abstract: Web 3.0, in terms of decentralization and token-based economics, isn’t new! For a decade, pioneers in projects such as Solid and the HAT have researched and offered new systems aiming to drastically decentralise the web. At its core, it’s a platform allowing you, me and everyone of us, to store our private information in Personal Data Stores (PDS), which an individual can have full control of, therefore store all the data within it. By having our own PDS, we are able to legally contract with the websites and apps that we want to, storing the data for ourselves, and also holding organisations to account for the usage of our data.

This is the first time, we, any consumer, can exercise our “data right” over highly valuable 1PORCHE data – 1st party authenticated, Privacy preserved, On-demand, Real-time, Contextual, Holistic and Ethical personal data.

This talk is to bring a live discussion around what data exchange (and its associated analytics, privacy, security) and business models may look alike, and how opportunities may emerge in various industries in an era of 1PORCHE data.

Spoiler alert: you may be surprised to find out how beef farming industry is being revolutionized when “data rights” are given back to individual cattle!


Professor Xiao Ma

Bio: Xiao Ma is Professor of Entrepreneurship and Management at Nottingham Business School, and the Director of the Centre for Business and Industry Transformation – CBIT. He is an internationally recognised thought-leader and educator in entrepreneurship, business transformation, and digital economy. He co-created the No. 1 ranked entrepreneurship programme in the UK (Eduniversal Best Master’s rankings in 2021).

As the CBIT director, he leads the scaling of an integrated approach in bringing together industry transformation research, disruptive business practice, and personalised education. His has led innovative businesses to fast-track growth to disrupt industry “norms”, including some Fortune 500 companies and many PLCs listed in US, China, Japan and Singapore.

Informed by industry challenges, he has led the augmentation of the existing research base in new business models and digital economy, through a portfolio of high impact research projects.

He is a seasoned innovator and entrepreneur, a 5-time founder to start, grow and exit ventures in Europe and Asia. His latest exit, the Hub of All Things, is recognised by UK’s House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence as one of the platforms that truly enables personal data driven personalised AI. The commercial arm, DataSwift, has been backed by top VCs in the UK and named one of the hottest technology companies to watch.

04:00-04:20pm Inference of Sensitive Variables With Social Networks
Professor Luis E C Rocha, Ghent University, Belgium

Professor Luis E C Rocha

Abstract: Misreporting is a common source of bias in population surveys involving sensitive information such as sexual behaviour, abortion, or criminal activity. To protect privacy, survey participants tend to avoid full disclosure of sensitive personal information, which can compromise the results of survey studies. We introduce a novel ego-centric sampling method based on the respondent’s social networks to make inferences indirectly and anonymously on sensitive traits. By using model and real-world populations, we show that high statistical performance can be achieved using our method and the novel estimator.

Bio: Luis Rocha is Professor of Econophysics and Social Physics. He is affiliated to the Dept of Economics and the Dept of Physics and Astronomy, and leads the Complex Systems Institute at Ghent University, Belgium (www.csi.ugent.be). His research and teaching cover interdisciplinary physics and complexity sciences applied to social, economic and health problems, with focus on computational modelling and network science.

Abstract: In this talk, the speaker will walk the audience through important milestones of socio-technical aspects of privacy, including important research works, concepts, phenomena, documents and legal pieces. Two selected research areas (Privacy Notices and Policies, and Behavioural Nudging) will be used to showcase some representative research work. Finally, the speaker will briefly introduce his own related work in recent years, hoping to stimulate some useful discussions and inspire new collaborations.
