Big Data & Privacy: Workshop Paper Collection

Big Data & Privacy: Workshop Paper Collection

The following are a collection of papers submitted in advance of the Future of Privacy Forum and the Stanford Center for Internet & Society’s “Big Data and Privacy: Making Ends Meet” workshop.  This collection addresses some of the following key questions: Does big data present new challenges, or is it simply the latest incarnation of the data regulation debate? Does big data create fundamentally novel opportunities that civil liberties concerns need to accommodate? Can de-identification and other technological or administrative controls sufficiently minimize privacy risks? What roles should privacy concepts like consent, context, and data minimization play in a big data world? What lessons can be applied from other fields?
