Dr Jyn Schultze-Melling presented and explained Facebook’s report “A New Paradigm for Personal Data”. This is the final report from Facebook’s roundtable series about how to create a positive and sustainable future for personal data – for the benefit of individuals, organisations and societies. It reflects the thoughts of 175 experts across 21 roundtables in 11 cities. It concludes that a sustainable personal data environment is one in which users can feel confident, and in which the value exchange is fair, so that the benefits of data are maximised while the harms are minimised.
The event saw TJ McIntyre respond to the report, setting out a civil liberties perspective on the gathering and use of personal data and critically examining the assumptions underlying arguments for data sharing. His talk focused on “Why Online Privacy is not Dead – Yet”. Joan Mulvihill, CEO of the Irish Internet Association, chaired the event.
The event was organised by the Ethics & Privacy Working Group of the ADAPT Centre and is run in association with Trinity College Dublin’s Schools of Law; Religions, Peace Studies and Theology; DCU Institute of Ethics, and the Trinity College Library.
