Personal Data Stores: boon or curse? Other events...
A public lecture by Dr Nicolo Zingales, Deputy Director, Centre for Information Governance Research, University of Sussex and Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

Personal Data Stores aim to help individuals and communities to be the beneficiaries of insights from their data. Some think it will redress the current power asymmetry with major digital platforms like Google and Facebook. But at the same time, Personal Data Stores lay the foundations for a new type of economy based on very specific personalised marketing, which makes consumers more transparent and prone to behavioural nudging. Will Personal Data Stores set us free, or lock us further into digital dependency?

This lecture will tackle these questions, offering a blueprint for the sort of legal and governance structures that could promote trust and accountability in the development of these services.
