Workshop on “Privacy and the Control of Knowledge in the Era of Big Data” at Sant’Anna
December 12, 2018
On 6 December 2018, Chantal Mak and Betül Kas attended a one-day workshop on “Privacy and the Control of Knowledge in the Era of Big Data”, which was held at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies. The event was organized by the PhD in Law of the Dirpolis Institute (Law, Politics, Development) and brought together faculty members and researchers of the Sant’Anna School, members of the Data Science community in Pisa, and external speakers. The workshop addressed from an interdisciplinary perspective the delicate relationship between privacy protection and control of knowledge in the era of big data, accountability and responsibility in the use of data, and the challenges posed by automated gathering of information and decision-making. In the afternoon session, Chantal Mak located the protection of privacy in the intersection between fundamental rights and private law and thereby linked the topic of the workshop to our “Judges in Utopia”-project.
