Communicating Data Ownership

  • Sensor Lab 4 Plompetorengracht Utrecht, UT, 3512 CC Netherlands (map)

This is a Demystifying the Smart City meet-up.

During this meet-up we will try to answer questions such as: What is currently done to inform people about what happens with their data? What are the problems designers face in trying to inform people? Why aren’t we using this language yet?

- Tijmen Schep - Privacy Expert;
- Jeremy Raider - UX / Product designer;
- Anita Nijboer - co-author ‘Smart & Leefbaar’;

Entrance: 5 euro's includes two drinks - PIN only

Tickets available at the door.

RSVP via Meet-Up

Data ownership and privacy are currently abstract topics. It is therefore difficult to understand the ramifications of sharing your data. When online we are constantly reminded that we share our data through all the cookies we have to accept. But when we're traversing the city our data is collected as well, but no notifications pop-up.

As part of the research project Demystifying the Smart City Sensor Lab explores the ramifications of sharing your data in public space. To discover new ways to communicate the consequences, we will research how we can create a visual language that corresponds with the smart city, and can be applied to the real world and online.

During this meetup we invite designers and privacy experts and researchers to reflect on examples of other visual languages that inform, and think of multiple ways to create a universal language to explain how your data is collected.

In close collaboration with Jeremy Raider, Sensor Lab and CLEVER FRANKE have developed a proposal for a new visual language’ that explains what is happening with your data. Together with the work of Tijmen Schep we'll discuss the potential of these visual languages. Anita Nijboer, co-author of the recently published ‘Smart & Leefbaar’, discusses the implications of rapidly increasing digitization, and its role on the livability of our cities and privacy.
