Mobility, Individualisation, Socialisation, Connectivity
(MISC) 2010 Conference
While emerging technologies and practices are leading towards a more person-centric Internet, the current Internet architecture, still organisation-centric, leads to increased fragmentation of personal data across an ever-growing number of services and sites, involving loss of privacy and loss of trust in personal and business relationships.
Moreover, while legislation supports the right to rectify personal records hosted by service providers, this is rarely enforced, simply because it is impossible to keep track of all the places where we leave and abandon personal data. This conference will explore the means to create an open and trustworthy architecture, based on a strict separation between the hosting of personal data and its exploitation by web services.
