luiy's insight:

For data brokers that provide marketing products, Congress should consider legislation to:

 

- Centralized Portal. Require the creation of a centralized mechanism, such as an Internet portal, where data brokers can identify themselves, describe their information collection and use practices, and provide links to access tools and opt- outs;

 

- Access. Require data brokers to give consumers access to their data, including any sensitive data, at a reasonable level of detail;


- Opt-Outs. Require opt-out tools, that is, a way for consumers to suppress the use of their data;

 

- Inferences. Require data brokers to tell consumers that they derive certain inferences from from raw data;

 

- Data Sources. Require data brokers to disclose the names and/or categories of their data sources, to enable consumers to correct wrong information with an original source;

 

- Notice and Choice. Require consumer-facing entities – such as retailers – to provide prominent notice to consumers when they share information with data brokers, along with the ability to opt-out of such sharing; and

 

- Sensitive Data. Further protect sensitive information, including health information, by requiring retailers and other consumer-facing entities to obtain affirmative express consent from consumers before such information is collected and shared with data brokers.

#Opendata, crowdsourcing, and #sharing economy tech take on new roles in disasters

#Opendata, crowdsourcing, and #sharing economy tech take on new roles in disasters | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Sharing economy services and crowdsourced tech can help aggregate and distribute aid, housing, energy, and transportation to disaster survivors. Airbnb is one company that's stepping up.
luiy's insight:

In a disaster, figuring out what technology you have still works, how long it will work, and who knows how to use it is precious information. The idea of "disaster tech" is a vocative of that notion: what works when nothing else does? Last week, at a forum convened by the White House to share commitments from the private sector and to demonstrate data-driven innovation to helping people and disasters, I was reminded of that need.

 

In a sign of the times, the categories in the program included the "sharing economy" and survivor support, crowdsourcing, open data, and public alerts. Behind the buzzwords, what matters most about any disaster technology is whether it works (from being interoperable with existing systems to being accessible to users), and whether it improves upon existing systems used by first responders and aid workers. If sharing economy services aggregate and distribute the demands of survivors to aid, excess housing, energy, or transport capacity, they can help people in need. These outcomes aren't theoretical.
