Preserving individual control over private information is one of the rising concerns in our digital society. Online social networks exist in application ecosystems that allow them to access data from other services, for example gathering contact lists through mobile phone applications. Such data access might allow social networking sites to create shadow profiles with information about non-users that has been inferred from information shared by the users of the social network. I will present our work on testing this privacy…

Nataliia Bielova: Detecting third-party tracking and GDPR violations in Web applications

Third-party Web tracking has been extensively studied over the last decade. In our work, we focus on two problems that address third-party tracking in Web applications and GDPR impact on trackers. First, we study detection of third-party tracking. Most of previous studies and user tools rely on filter lists. However, there has always been a suspicion that lists miss many trackers. In this paper, we propose an alternative method to detect trackers inspired by analyzing behavior of invisible pixels. By crawling…

Elena Simperl: Qrowd and the city: Designing people-centric smart cities

November 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+1

Smart cities are as much about the needs, expectations and values of the people they serve as they are about the underlying technology. In this talk, I am going to present several areas of system design where human and social factors play a critical role, from fostering participation to augmented intelligence and responsible innovation. I will present ongoing challenges, solutions and opportunities, drawing from recent studies in Qrowd, a Horizon 2020 programme proposing a humane AI approach for transport and mobility. About the speaker: Elena Simperl is a professor of computer…

Christoph Fabianek: Semantic Container for Data Mobility

An enormous wealth of data is being created in our increasingly digitized life and economies, but the majority of this data is either being monopolized or shared for questionable purposes rather than facilitating innovation. One of the main issues that inhibits data reuse and the emergence of vibrant data markets is the lack of standard mechanisms for the execution of controlled transactions between data providers and consumers, including efficient provisioning of data and associated services. Consequently, many potential data providers…

Krzysztof Paruch: Economic Systems Engineering

Economic Systems Engineering is a new discipline of study related to the emerging field of Cryptoeconomics. Facilitated by the advent of the Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) it became possible to create digital economies on top of a trustworthy digital infrastructure that is jointly operated by network participants by the use of rights managed by cryptographic tokens. In contrast to today’s web2 and its platform-economies, in the web3 enabled token-economies of the future data is no longer stored and…

Kris Ruijgrok: The politics behind India’s internet shutdowns

India is the world’s largest democracy, but also holds the dubious record of having the highest number of internet shutdowns worldwide. Concerningly moreover, the frequency of shutdowns in India is only increasing. According to the Software Freedom and Law Center (SFLC.in), an Indian NGO defending digital rights, the number of shutdowns rose from 6 in 2014 to 14 in 2015, 31 in 2016, 79 in 2017, to 134 (!) internet shutdowns in 2018. When a shutdown in India takes place,…
