Van klant naar product. Open data: Unlocking innovation and performance with liquid information.
Open data—machine-readable information, particularly government data, that’s made available to others—has generated a great deal of excitement around the world for its potential to empower citizens, change how government works, and improve the delivery of public services.
It may also generate significant economic value, according to a new McKinsey report. Our research suggests that seven sectors alone could generate more than $3 trillion a year in additional value as a result of open data, which is already giving rise to hundreds of entrepreneurial businesses and helping established companies to segment markets, define new products and services, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations. Protecting student data in a digital world. Across industries, data and advanced analytics are being used to personalize products and services, generate more impact at lower cost, and improve the user experience.
Education is another field that stands to benefit from this trend: there is much evidence that data-fueled learning tools can dramatically improve student outcomes. The effective use of student data in K–12 schools—in fact, in most of the education system—is nascent, however. Schools, and in particular public schools, have limited budgets and may find it difficult to prioritize investment in data-driven tools and technologies. School systems are enormously complex, which can make it challenging to implement new programs. Edward Snowden Explains How To Reclaim Your Privacy. LAST MONTH, I met Edward Snowden in a hotel in central Moscow, just blocks away from Red Square.
It was the first time we’d met in person; he first emailed me nearly two years earlier, and we eventually created an encrypted channel to journalists Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald, to whom Snowden would disclose overreaching mass surveillance by the National Security Agency and its British equivalent, GCHQ. This time around, Snowden’s anonymity was gone; the world knew who he was, much of what he’d leaked, and that he’d been living in exile in Moscow, where he’s been stranded ever since the State Department canceled his passport while he was en route to Latin America. His situation was more stable, the threats against him a bit easier to predict. So I approached my 2015 Snowden meeting with less paranoia than was warranted in 2013, and with a little more attention to physical security, since this time our communications would not be confined to the internet.
Our Seven Privacies: The Many Important Facets Of Privacy. When we talk of privacy online, it is easy to narrow the discussion to something that can be described as “anti-wiretapping”.
But privacy is a much more diverse and important concept than that. In general, we can talk of seven different privacies, each important to our civil liberties from different angles. There are seven distinct important types of privacies. We speak of privacy of body, correspondence, data, economy, identity, location, and territory.

The United States Now Needs To Be Part of Any Privacy Threat ModelPrivacy Online News. When I was working in the European Parliament, there was one quote that stuck with me: “you’ll never see somebody’s own government listed among the threats to a customer’s privacy in their marketing material”.
For all the companies out there wanting to “help” you with your own data – mail spam filters, big data processors, cloud services, and so on – there’s always a cleptocratic government lurking in the background and which is an utter and unacceptable threat to the security of that data. With the passage of the CISA in the United States last week, the bill that has been described as a “Patriot Act on Steroids” and which was dysfunctionally attached as a rider to a budget bill to prevent discussion or even attention, the United States government is now an adversary to worldwide privacy.
Facebook and Dave Eggers's 'The Circle': Sharing Is Caring Is Sharing. The construction begs for comparison, and yet “The Circle” is no “1984.”
In the future, according to Dave Eggers, one mega social-network corporation, the namesake of his new novel, has become the technological architect of daily life—arranging conversations, restocking pantries, making payments, and ranking human beings. The company’s leaders wear zip-up hoodies, of course, and enjoy surfing, yet they are known with reverent remove as the Three Wise Men.

NHS England patient data 'uploaded to Google servers', Tory MP says. A prominent Tory MP on the powerful health select committee has questioned how the entire NHS hospital patient database for England was handed over to management consultants who uploaded it to Google servers based outside the UK.
Sarah Wollaston, who practised as a family doctor and is now a Conservative backbencher, tweeted: "So HES [hospital episode statistics] data uploaded to 'google's immense army of servers', who consented to that? " The patient information had been obtained by PA Consulting, which claimed to have secured the "entire start-to-finish HES dataset across all three areas of collection – inpatient, outpatient and A&E". The data set was so large it took up 27 DVDs and took a couple of weeks to upload. The management consultants said: "Within two weeks of starting to use the Google tools we were able to produce interactive maps directly from HES queries in seconds. " Education Week.

InBloom's database. Your Child’s Data: Now Online. Crack investigative journalist Stephanie Simon has done it again.
In this article, she describes the $100 million plan to collect confidential student data and put it into a giant database. Simon writes: “In operation just three months, the database already holds files on millions of children identified by name, address and sometimes social security number.

In some cases, the database tracks student hobbies, career goals, attitudes toward school – even homework completion. “Local education officials retain legal control over their students’ information.
