Abstract

Introduction to the 2013 Digital Enlightenment Forum Yearbook. The chapters in this yearbook have been invited from not only scholars from across various disciplinary backgrounds, notably computer science, psychology, law and philosophy, but also a number of authors involved in specific personal data management initiatives, and they investigate how these technologies will affect individuals with regard to privacy, informational self-determination, contextual integrity, and the notions of personal identity and the networked self. What values do the different stakeholders associate with and derive from personal data and individual privacy? What are the options for individuals and society to control the use of personal data in a digital world full of user-generated content, multinational service providers, smart and interconnected devices, and sophisticated Big Data algorithms? How can individuals and civil society organisations use these new technologies for their own benefit and for their own perception of the public benefit, for example, via the exploitation of open data – and, when it comes to open data, can they really exploit without being exploited? To what extent can increasing transparency support trust and privacy? What technical and social infrastructures are needed for supporting control and transparency? Can they be put in place without destroying social (and commercial) value? And what if they can’t? To what extent must a Digital Enlightenment live with the monetisation of our personal data?
