Redesigning Data Privacy: Reimagining Notice & Consent for human technology interaction

July 01, 2020

The way in which we as people interact with technology is continuously evolving. When the permissions people grant to companies and organizations at one point in time become the gateway for everything that happens to that data in the future, that moment becomes extremely important, perhaps far beyond what could be envisaged. Given the ubiquity of data collection online and the necessity of technologies that enhance our lives but rely on that data, is there a better way to manage the relationship between people and technology?

The World Economic Forum partnered with the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School and a community of policy-makers, researchers, civil society advocates, legal scholars, and industry and design practitioners to convene a set of conversations about the challenges of Notice & Consent as a norm for data collection and processing, particularly when it comes to the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The goal was to facilitate creative thinking towards a potential redesign of the framework for all aspects of information collection, use, retention and disclosure.
