Exercise: Wrap-up1:34 with Michelle Zohlman
How did it go? Evaluate your comfort level with personal details being public or private.
How did it go? 0:00 What do you consider to be the most private? 0:02 Which are the most public? 0:05 Did you have difficulty deciding? 0:07 For the data you feel most okay with being public, 0:10 can you think of how that information could be used against someone? 0:13 Could a company manipulate it in the name of profit? 0:18 Could it threaten someone's options or safety? 0:21 For the most private data, what if your data could be shared for a good purpose? 0:25 For example, what if your DNA can help scientists discover a cure for disease? 0:30 Does that change your point of view? 0:36 Sometimes companies share data anonymously to encourage people to opt in. 0:39 While that sounds reasonably safe, we need more information. 0:45 Can the data be narrowed down into subsets or combined with more data sets? 0:50 That could lead to your anonymous data becoming re identified. 0:55 In 2016, AOL publicly released 20 million anonymized search queries, 1:00 in hopes it would be useful for research purposes. 1:05 New York Times reporters successfully identified one person 1:09 and her search queries in the data set. 1:13 Even though AOL had removed identifying information such as usernames and 1:16 IP addresses, re-identification was still possible. 1:20 Do you think there should be rules about the availability of personal data? 1:25 Reflect on these questions before moving on to the next video. 1:30
