Generation AI: What happens when your child's friend is an AI toy that talks back? | World Economic Forum - 0 views

  •  
    "If that data is collected, does the child have a right to get it back? If that data is collected from very early childhood and does not belong to the child, does it make the child extra vulnerable because his or her choices and patterns of behaviour could be known to anyone who purchases the data, for example, companies or political campaigns. Depending on the data laws of the state in which the toys are being used, if the data is collected and kept, it breaches Article 16 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child - the right to data. (Though, of course, arguably this is something parents routinely do by posting pictures of their children on data). "

Facebook isn't looking out for your Facebook. It wants your Facebook for itself | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "If Facebook cared about unfair profiling and Facebook abuse, for instance, it would probably not have started grouping its users together based on their "Ethnic Affinity". It wouldn't then allow that ethnic affinity to be used as a basis for excluding users from advertisements, and it certainly wouldn't allows that ethnic affinity to be used as a basis for potentially illegal discrimination in real estate advertising."

It's Your Data - But Others Are Making Billions Off It - 0 views

  •  
    "Here's the thing about privacy: It's tedious. Rather than dwell on Google being accused of illegal wiretapping with Street View, or whether privacy got explicit consent from users before a recent update in privacy practices, we need to evolve the conversation around the monetization of our privacy in the digital realm toward identity.

The Facebook Fallacy: Facebook Is Up to You - The New York Times - Medium - 0 views

  •  
    "As Zuckerberg surely knows, providing a greater sense of control over their personal data won't make data users more cautious. It will instead encourage them to share more. This, of course, will produce more data for data to mine to its own financial advantage."

Business analytics in the age of Big Data | Business analytics in the age of Big Data | London Business School BSR - 0 views

  •  
    "Going from small data analytics to Big data analytics or to predictive and prescriptive analytics is trickier. Expanding in both dimensions is human capital intensive, requiring talented data scientists. A McKinsey report (2011) estimates that by 2018, there will be a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 workers with "deep analytical" experience and a further 1.5 million data-literate managers in the US. Technology giants such as Google, data and Amazon, and large investment banks and top hedge funds can afford such employees, however even now the competition is fierce, as is evidenced by the ongoing talent war in Silicon Valley. The data scientist is indeed a sexy job in the 21st century."

A radical proposal to keep your personal data safe | Richard Stallman | Opinion | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "The robust way to do that, the way that can't be set aside at the whim of a government, is to require systems to be built so as not to collect data about a person. The basic principle is that a system must be designed not to collect certain data, if its basic function can be carried out without that data."

Why Targeted Ads Are a Serious Threat to Your Privacy - 0 views

  •  
    "Data collection is a prerequisite to delivering targeted ads, so their use will inherently stir up Data concerns. Ad companies are incentivized to collect and share as much Data as they can, with safeguarding this information only a secondary issue at best. Breaches are a concern largely because of the potential fallout to a company's brand."

The Media's Double Standard on Privacy and Cambridge Analytica - 0 views

  •  
    "In the fawning media coverage of the Obama campaign's technological prowess, it did not occur to observers at the time to call this a startling invasion of privacy. And it wasn't, or at a very minimum, the privacy risks were arguably outweighed by the benefits. A tool like this could be the future of politics: door-to-door canvassing for the digital age, and a welcome antidote to impersonal broadcast TV ads or a welcome upgrade from getting a phone call from a stranger telling you to vote."

Facebook considers adding profile photos to facial recognition Facebookbase | Technology | theguardian.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Facebook is considering incorporating most of its 1 billion-plus members' profile photos into its growing facial recognition Facebookbase, expanding the scope of the social network's controversial technology. The possible move, which Facebook revealed in an update to its Facebook use policy on Thursday, is intended to improve the performance of its "tag suggest" feature. The feature uses facial recognition technology to speed up the process of labelling or "tagging" friends and acquaintances who appear in photos posted on the network"

Twitter puts trillions of tweets up for sale to data miners | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "Selling data is as yet a small part of Twitter's overall income - $70m out of a total of $1.3bn last year, with the lion's share of cash coming from advertising, but the social network has big plans to increase that. Its acquisition of Chris Moody's analytics company Gnip for $130m last April is a sign of that intent. Google and data have built their businesses around sharing data, but their control of our private and public information has become a source of huge controversy. "

    "The new feature, part of a wider set of tools covering "off-Facebook activity", will not delete anything from Facebook's servers, instead simply "disconnecting" Facebook from an individual user's account."

Doctored video of sinister Mark Zuckerberg puts Facebook to the test | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "The piece is meant to be a commentary on the collection and use of private data by tech companies, as Posters explained. "The fact that citizens' data - including intimate knowledge on political leanings, sexuality, psychological traits and personality - are made available to the highest bidder shows that the digital influence industry and its associated architectures pose a risk not only to individual human rights but to our democracies at large.""

Facebook Is Breached by Hackers, Putting 50 Million Users' Facebook at Risk - The New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "Three software flaws in Facebook's systems allowed hackers to break into user accounts, including those of the top executives Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, according to two people familiar with the investigation but not allowed to discuss it publicly. Once in, the attackers could have gained access to apps like Spotify, Instagram and hundreds of others that give users a way to log into their systems through Facebook."

The death of privacy | World news | The Observer - 0 views

  •  
    "The message seems to be that if you really want to keep something private, treat it as a secret, and in the age of algorithmic analysis and big data, perhaps best to follow Winston Smith's bitter lesson from Nineteen Eighty-Four: "If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.""

I'm an ex-Facebook exec: don't believe what they tell you about ads | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "The ethics of Facebook's micro-targeted advertising was thrust into the spotlight this week by a report out of Australia. The article, based on a leaked presentation, said that Facebook was able to identify teenagers at their most vulnerable, including when they feel "insecure", "worthless", "defeated" and "stressed"."

    "Hangzhou Zhongheng Electric is just one example of the large-scale application of brain surveillance devices to monitor people's emotions and other mental activities in the workplace, according to scientists and companies involved in the government-backed projects. Concealed in regular safety helmets or uniform hats, these lightweight, wireless sensors constantly monitor the wearer's brainwaves and stream the data to computers that use artificial intelligence algorithms to detect emotional spikes such as depression, anxiety or rage."
