Metadata and privacy.
Mistakes are mine.
A1. We need to look at the definition of Metadata, often referred to as “the data about data”. More importantly, it’s hidden data about your devices, systems you use, location, characteristics, processes etc. You’re sharing more than you know every single time. #AIChat— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
It’s a threat to your privacy mostly due to the way it’s being collected by businesses driven by large amounts of data. This makes you a product, and puts you at risk. It’s why GDPR in the EU has been so outspoken about it. Invisible data collected about you. #AIchat— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
There is. The first one is to know your rights, from a legal standpoint. The second is to use tools that strip off metadata from your photos, devices, whenever you share them online.— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
The 3rd is to adopt and encourage companies that have proper metadata governance. #AIchat
Also, to use tools, open source tech that focuses on privacy first, instead of closed source too-big-to-fail products from corporations and big tech. #AIchat— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
Look for companies that embrace non-tracking non-tracing standards, that are privacy-by-design focused, tools created for community, not for profit. Use them. Support these organisations like Tor and Mozilla to carry on their work. #AIchat— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
What happens if companies decide not to create a proper metadata governance? Does this mean we shouldn’t do business with them? #AIChat— Nick Tang (@nickhtang) September 1, 2020
Opting out is always a choice. The choices you make speak for yourself. When something is really important to you, you learn to take action and claim your rights. I think we’ve spent too much time in this “herd” syndrome of “everyone’s using it”. #AIChat— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
To my point here, privacy-focused jurisdictions are also a great way to protect you from unwanted private data abuse.— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
I’m just a dreamer, but I’m dreaming that someday, we’ll see more privacy law standards, and businesses adopting proper data ethics in their org. #AIChat
I would not call myself an expert, I think people working in cybersecurity are the real experts, and they understand this at a much deeper level.— Roxana Nasoi (The Hat) (@roxanasoi) September 1, 2020
I’m mostly discussing from a point of e-citizens and an entrepreneur that works with data. (ehealth, open banking), #AIChat
