    1. The Hindu text provides balanced analysis of the reaction of Facebook on the movie 'The Social Media'. On the policy side, this movie opens the question of privacy, anti-trust regulation, and mental health.

      Facebook follows its standard rhetorics by shifting discussion in the past - 'the efforts already taken' - and the future - 'we are working to change this'.

    1. Data Modelling

      the key challene for data modelling is quality of meta-data: keywords, tags, issues.

      With our system getting off the ground, our efforts will be on consolidating tags/keywords/issues. We will use AI tools in this consolidation process. Personally, as Diplo 5.0 is getting off on all technical, organisational and other aspects, I will focus more and more on tags and data modelling.

    2. Data Architects understand the organisation’s strategy and business problems to be solved, but have the technical insight to get their hands dirty in the data itself. They know what data is needed and how that data is to be integrated by various systems.

      Diplo 5.0 advanced a lot on data archtecture by combinaton of Textus - DigitalWatch - AI - LMS (to be added later on).

    1. 80% of industrial data is still collected and never used. This is pure waste.

      According to some statistics, 99.5% of collected data never gets used or analysed. https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/r/en/us/internet-of-everything-ioe/analytics-automation/assets/files/analytics-infographic.pdf

    2. And this is why we need to secure this data for Europe and make it widely accessible. 

      Interesting that EU is speaking about securing industrial data for the benefit of Europe. Until recently, this was mostly a developing country issue (re. the African group talking about digital industrial development). ||Jovan||

    1. To help fill the gap, the data science for social good (DSSG) movement has for years been making datasets about important social issues—such as health care infrastructure, school enrollment, air quality, and business registrations—available to trusted organizations or the public. Large tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Amazon, and others have recently begun to embrace the DSSG movement. Spurred on by advances in the field, the Development Data Partnership, the World Economic Forum’s 2030Vision consortium, and Data Collaboratives, they're offering information about social media users’ mobility during COVID-19, cloud computing infrastructure to help nonprofits analyze large datasets, and other important tools and services.

    1. Access networks and access devices — the edge of the Internet — evolve rapidly, with many and varied devices connecting to new services, potentially using specialised networks, driven in large part by the IoT. 5G cellular network standardisation and deployment are partially driven by anticipated uses that depend on bespoke access networks with much greater processing capabilities in base stations close to mobile terminals.

      Again, it would be interesting to understand what could be the interplay between this trend and data localization.

    2. Underpinning the trend of content and cloud providers investing in their own infrastructure is the dominance of a small set of providers in the application layer, predominantly Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft. Their services rely on a global network of interconnected data centres and servers to process and deliver content closer to the users

      Would data localization policies significantly impact these giants' operations?

    3. large content and cloud providers are investing in their own international connectivity infrastructure to serve their networks of data centres and servers across the globe.

      What is the interplay between this localization trend and governmental data localization policies?

    4. As large investments are required in order to provide the full range of capabilities and resources, the IaaS and PaaS markets appear to be consolidating around the major players.

      If users in developing countries are hiring big companies to be their cloud computing providers, what's the impact of potential data localisation? Theoretically, these companies would have the resources to build processing facilities in developing countries (at least the largest ones). But: a) would that really translate into gains for developing countries (ex. create jobs, access to technology, the development of a local tech scene? b) Would smaller countries be able to enforce the same demand?; c) could data localisation be enforced on a regional basis instead to benefit from some gains of scale? ||MariliaM||

    5. With the ability to access and manage servers remotely, from anywhere on the Internet, new businesses have emerged that specialise in renting out space and processing on their servers. Today, cloud computing services dominate this arena. They use large data-centres with expertise and economies of scale, offering their specialised services globally. Customers tend to access these resources as needed instead of buying and managing servers themselves
      • Will data localisation trends affect the infrastructure of the service provision (ex. will localization of data centers have an impact on CDN deployment)?
      • How will data localisation trends affect the market of cloud computing services? (there are some empirical cases to study eg. India)
      • What is the prevailing regulatory trend in trade negotiations (global and regional, via RTAs, and national with a few case studies) when it comes to data localization? What are the political motivations for and against data localization?
      • What are the potential gains and losses that developing countries may face if they implement data localisation provisions? What are the potential unintended consequences (ex. difficulty in accessing the processing and analytical capability necessary for the national development of AI tools? ||MariliaM||

    1. Companies relying on SCCs will have to begin the case-by-case assessments of their transfers to determine whether the protections in the U.S. or any country without an adequacy determination meet EU standards in the context of the specific transfer.

      To continue the concept that I've outlined in the page note, this doesn't mean anything to me as a webmaster and as a business owner. What exactly do I need to do/implement? Should I remove the Google services or are some of them ok, can I host my website in the US, what happens if I'm using Cloudflare etc...

    2. A brainstorming/question/proposal.

      This issue with Privacy shield going down has created a lot of buzz in technical community and I have first hand knowledge of European companies removing Google Analytics and related services from their websites which is a very big deal ad has consequences on business process among many other things. Since there is a lot of misunderstanding about the implications of this court decision, can we write something which is more tangible and useful for the average user than majority of texts I've came across on the web that go into detail explaining the rulings but not really explaining what operationally this means for website owners - similarly what happened when GDPR appeared. This could be one of those nice trending/visiting articles that can generate visibility for a long time.

      I would target a slightly wider audience of webmasters and business owners who are not into legal vocabulary but more in "what do I have to do now" and why the shouldn't rush into panic.

    1. This has played out in the recent rush to form global AI ethics guidelines: developing countries in Africa, Latin America, and Central Asia have been largely left out of the discussions, which has led some to refuse to participate in international data flow agreements.

    1. We’re also using data in new ways to inform the public health response. We partnered with Carnegie Mellon University to launch a Covid-19 Symptom Survey that canhelp researcherspredict the spread of the disease. With millions of responses, researchers are able to get a much more detailed picture of the pandemic. We also contributed aggregatedanonymized location data to the Covid-19 Mobility Data Network, a group of 40 health researchers whose work helps governments determine ifand whereit’s appropriate to roll back social distancing orders. I’m proud that we’ve been able to support people, businesses and the public health effortduring this crisis.

      Interesting data activity.

    1. to attract the storage and processing of data from other countries and regions

      Which countries and regions is it aiming for? Africa? (Not Asia, not USA, not Russia...)

    2. free and safe flow of data should be ensured with third countries, subject to exceptions and restrictions for public security, public order and other legitimate public policy objectives of the European Union, in line with international obligations. This would allow the EU to have an open but assertive international data approach based on its values and strategic interests

      Legalese. And again: the EU will have 'an open but assertive international data approach based on its values and strategic interests'

    3. European companies operating in some third countries are increasingly faced with unjustified barriers and digital restrictions

      Is this directed at China?

    4. open, but assertive approach to international data flows, based on European values

      Open but assertive, based on European values.

      Dear USA, the data of EU citizens will now be in Europe. Or so we hope. We may allow the flow of data your way, but you will have to respect our laws, including GDPR. We will put our put down once we have our common spaces in place. Yours, the EU

    5. Common European data spaces in strategic sectors and domains of public interest

      Pillar 4: The 9 + 1 common data spaces

    6. Competences: Empowering individuals, investing in skills and in SMEs

      Pillar 3: Public awareness + improvements to the right to data portability (either updating GDPR s.20, or via new Data Act 2021)

    7. Enablers: Investments in data and strengthening Europe’s capabilities and infrastructures for hosting, processing and using data, interoperability

      Pillar 2: Investment for a High Impact Project on European data spaces and federated cloud infrastructures. Essentially, to create the infrastructure so that data stays/is hosted in Europe

    8. A cross-sectoral governance framework for data access and use

      Pillar 1: Data governance:

      • It will develop a framework for the 9 + 1 common data spaces, by end 2020
      • It will adopt an Implementing act on high-value sets (HVD), by Q1 2021
      • Develop a Data Act 2021 for cross-sectoral data-sharing (ex B2G) Plus, potential ex ante legislation on platforms & data; and jurisdictional measures to protect EU companies from being subject to jurisdictional claims from other countries
    9. APPENDIX to the Communication ‘A European strategy for data’

      The 9 + 1 common data spaces

    10. Artificial Intelligence

      AI is mentioned so many times. No wonder the Data Strategy was published alongside the AI white paper

    11. such as data protection rules

      ie, US Cloud Act could be seen as not as strict as GDPR. CHECK

    12. Data governance

      Not much is said here

    13. single European data space – a genuine single market for data, open to data from across the world – where personal as well as non-personal data, including sensitive business data, are secure and businesses also have easy access to an almost infinite amount of high-quality industrial data

      Concept of European data space (a genuine single market for data, open to data from across the world). Data in, but not data out. That is, data of European citizens kept within EU, rather than continuing to seep through EU's space towards USA.

    14. digital diplomacy

      What does digital diplomacy mean here?

    15. In the US, the organisation of the data space is left to the private sector, with considerable concentration effects. China has a combination of government surveillance with a strong control of Big Tech companies over massive amounts of data without sufficient safeguards for individuals. In order to release Europe’s potential we have to find our European way, balancing the flow and wide use of data, while preserving high privacy, security, safety and ethical standards.

      EU is positioning itself as a more balanced approach to the USA (private sector-led) and China (government-led)

    16. Data will also fuel the wide implementation of transformative practices such as the use of digital twins in manufacturing.

      Concept of digital twins. Used in manufacturing

    17. Data is the lifeblood of economic development

      New analogy

    18. data strategy is presented at the same time as the Commission’s Communication on “Shaping Europe’s digital future” and a White Paper on artificial intelligenc

    1. While Agustin Reyna of the European Consumer Organisation, BEUC, said that this was an impossible distinction to make, Facebook’s Director of Social and Economic Policy, EU Affairs, Phillip Malloch, said the lines between personal and non-personal data should be straightforward to draw

      They speak at approx 1:26:00 at https://www.pscp.tv/w/1YqGoRqNnjvKv

      Facebook's Malloch did not really substantiate. He referred to FB's Data Transfer project on data portability to show that FB is making the portability of personal data possible. Re data strategy, the GDPR's definition of personal data is more or less fine.

      Reyna from BEUC said in practice, many datasets include both personal and non-personal data, so it is very difficult to distinguish. The European Commission's approach to mixed data within a dataset is to treat the whole set as personal data, with full application of the GDPR.

      Also he says: The industry often says that consent is the main basis that they have to follow re GDPR. In reality, the private sector also needs to look at the principles underlying the GDPR (ex privacy by design & default, etc) as these are what define the scope under which data can be collected and processed.

    1. “Conducting trials at a multinational level is time-consuming as each country has a different system, with different standards, which has led to a very heterogeneous way of doing studies. This ultimately means we may not be getting the most accurate information,” Kesecioglu warned. One way to achieve this is via the creation of an EU-wide platform for data sharing, which both say could allow a better quantity and quality of data for research purposes.
