BYTE continues to build its Big Data Community and organises a panel at the Privacy Camp 2017 on how civil society can engage in the policy debates on Big Data. BYTE will present its research results on the societal externalities of big data and discuss with representatives from NGOs and the EDPS how these can be addressed. Speakers will be Christian D’Cunha (EDPS), Diego Naranjo (EDRi), Estelle Massé (AccessNow) and Hans Lammerant (VUB and BYTE).
Privacy Camp is an annual civil society meeting held the day before the start of CPDP, a leading conference on data protection and privacy in Brussels. The event brings together digital rights advocates, members of NGOs, civil rights groups as well as academics and policy-makers from all around Europe and beyond to discuss the most pressing issues facing human rights online. The Privacy Camp 2017 takes place on 24th January 2017. More information and programme can be found on the Privacy Camp website.
BYTE will also be present on CPDP and participates on 27th January in a panel organised by the FutureTDM project on the impact of data protection regulation for the uptake of advanced data analysis technologies like text and data mining. A taster for this debate can be found in the blog text BYTE published on the FutureTDM-website.
