Consent is the critical fulcrum that makes MyData possible – it tips the balance in favour of people (the human aspect), but also potentially makes MyData exponentially more valuable and useful to organisations. Getting Consent right will ensure that the balance between Me (my expectations, rights and interests) and the rest of the world will enhance data flows, rather than impede these flows. Setting aside the philosophical debate on why consent is important and what this means to different people in different contexts, this track will focus on how to address challenges and opportunities for consent. Traditional research in this area has included evaluations of the terms of consent, readability of notices, and / or information sharing agreements Given the theme of the conference, the contexts for consent are quite broad; participants are also welcome to address consent in new frontiers, such as AI or machine learning, IoT and special protection groups.
