Data Selfie _ by D4D4x Chrome extension logs what Facebook learns about you | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Data Selfie is a browser extension that tracks you while you are on Facebook to show you your own data traces and reveal how machine learning algorithms use your data to gain insights about your personality.

 

The tool explores our relationship to the online data we leave behind as a result of media consumption and social networks - the information you share consciously and unconsciously.

What Only Artists Can Teach Us About Technology, Data, & #Surveillance by Jen Graves / #mediaart #dataart

What Only Artists Can Teach Us About Technology, Data, & #Surveillance by Jen Graves / #mediaart #dataart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The University of Washington and Microsoft Research are making big investments in uncategorizable, emerging-media work. What are their artists stumbling upon?

 

Not long ago, during an exclusive reception for donors to the University of Washington's College of Arts & Sciences, a handful of student artists were invited to present their works. When it came time for a piece by Robert Twomey, a PhD candidate in the university's emerging-technology department called DXARTS, one donor responded viciously, openly declaring his art "an abomination."

 

The art was a machine that makes drawings. The donor was a woman trained in painting and printmaking, a die-hard believer in the importance of the hand of the artist.

 

"But there's no one behind it!" she exclaimed.
"But I am behind it," said Twomey.

 

She gave him her name and number and the impression that she'd like to cure him of an affliction. Twomey kept trying to explain that he was a painter at heart, that they were on the same side...

Now You Can Hide Your Smart Home on the #Darknet by Andy Greenberg

Now You Can Hide Your Smart Home on the #Darknet by Andy Greenberg | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

THE PRIVACY SOFTWARE Tor has aided everything from drug dealing marketplaces to whistleblowing websites in evading surveillance on the darknet. Now that same software can be applied to a far more personal form of security: keeping hackers out of your toaster.

 

On Wednesday, the privacy-focused non-profit Guardian Project, a partner of the Tor Project that maintains and develops the Tor anonymity network, announced a new technique it’s developed to apply Tor’s layers of encryption and network stealth to protecting so-called “Internet of things” or “smart home” devices. That growing class of gadgets, ranging from refrigerators to lightbulbs to security cameras, are connected to the Internet to make possible new forms of remote management and automation. They also, as the security research community has repeatedly demonstrated, enable a new breed of over-the-Internet attacks, such as the rash of hackers harassing infants via baby monitors or the potential for hackers to steal your Gmail password from your fridge.

'State of Surveillance' with Edward #Snowden and Shane Smith

When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, he ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security. That debate came to a head this year, when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook. Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents. To find out the government's real capabilities, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet the man who started the conversation, Edward Snowden.

Introducing #DeepText: Facebook's text understanding engine

Introducing #DeepText: Facebook's text understanding engine | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Text is a prevalent form of communication on Facebook. Understanding the various ways text is used on Facebook can help us improve people's experiences with our products, whether we're surfacing more of the content that people want to see or filtering out undesirable content like spam. 

 

in french >>> http://www.futura-sciences.com/magazines/high-tech/infos/actu/d/internet-deeptext-facebook-veut-lire-comprendre-tout-ce-vous-ecrivez-63022

 

With this goal in mind, we built DeepText, a deep learning-based text understanding engine that can understand with near-human accuracy the textual content of several thousands posts per second, spanning more than 20 languages.

 

DeepText leverages several deep neural network architectures, including convolutional and recurrent neural nets, and can perform word-level and character-level based learning. We use FbLearner Flow and Torch for model training. Trained models are served with a click of a button through the FBLearner Predictor platform, which provides a scalable and reliable model distribution infrastructure. Facebook engineers can easily build new DeepText models through the self-serve architecture that DeepText provides. ...

Jaywalking, interactive installation by Dries Depoorter /// #mediaart #security #privacy | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

JayWalking gives us an opportunity to watch traffic webcams and decide on the fate of pedestrians recklessly crossing the road. Old security monitors display live webcam footage of intersections in different countries. A counter at the bottom of the screen shows how much the fines are for the offense, depending on the country where it’s being committed.

 

Depoorter then presents us with a dilemma: will we report the unsuspecting jaywalker? A single click of a mouse can send a screenshot of the violation to the nearest police station.

Backslash: a toolkit for protesters facing hyper-militarized, surveillance-heavy police // #hactivism

Backslash: a toolkit for protesters facing hyper-militarized, surveillance-heavy police // #hactivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Backslash -- an "art/design" project from NYU Interactive Technology Program researchers Xuedi Chen and Pedro G. C. Oliveira -- is a set of high-tech tools for protesters facing down a "hyper-militarized," surviellance-heavy state adversary, including a device to help protesters keep clear of police kettles; a jammer to foil Stingray mobile-phone surveillance; a mesh-networking router; a "personal cloud" that tries to mirror photos and videos from a protest to an offsite location; and tools for covertly signalling situational reports to other protesters.


The kit was inspired by the experiences of protesters at the Gezi Park demonstrations in Turkey; the Hong Kong Umbrella Revolution; and Brazil's Vinegar Revolt. The designers don't plan on making the kit available; instead, it's designed as a "provocation" to stimulate discussion about the nature of protest in the 21st century.

Mark Zuckerberg, Let Me Pay for Facebook /// by Zeynep Tufekci

Mark Zuckerberg, Let Me Pay for Facebook /// by Zeynep Tufekci | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

FACEBOOK. Instagram. Google. Twitter. All services we rely on — and all services we believe we don’t have to pay for. Not with cash, anyway. But ad-financed Internet platforms aren’t free, and the price they extract in terms of privacy and control is getting only costlier.

A recent Pew Research Center poll shows that 93 percent of the public believes that “being in control of who can get information about them is important,” and yet the amount of information we generate online has exploded and we seldom know where it all goes.

Facebook and other social networking sites that collect vast amounts of user data are financed by ads. Just this week Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, announced plans to open users’ feeds to more advertisers. The dirty secret of this business model is that Internet ads aren’t worth much. Ask Ethan Zuckerman, who in the 1990s helped found Tripod.com, one of the web’s earliest ad-financed sites with user-generated content.

« Internet comme territoire sans frontières, c’est une vaste blague » par Rémi Noyon

« Internet comme territoire sans frontières, c’est une vaste blague » par Rémi Noyon | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Surveillance des Etats, collecte de données par des entreprises comme Facebook ou Google : pour l'informaticien Franck Leroy, il y a des liens consanguins entre entreprises et services américains.


Tout est parti de ce dialogue initié par un journaliste du Figaro :

« Qu’on m’explique. Pourquoi les opposants au projet de loi renseignement acceptent-ils que Facebook, Google ou Twitter sachent tout de leur vie ? »

Cette manière de présenter les choses pourrait paraître simpliste (après tout les opposants à la loi sur le renseignement sont souvent très critiques vis-à-vis des GAFA), mais elle est souvent revenue ces dernières semaines : pourquoi se focaliser sur la surveillance de l’Etat alors que l’actualité nous apporte chaque semaine des exemples flippants de ce que les géants du Web pourraient faire avec nos données ?


L’émergence du Big Data permet déjà de prévenir (en partie) le crime avant qu’il n’ait lieu et le développement des objets connectés pourrait, par exemple, servir à identifier les appareils que vous utilisez chez vous grâce à leur empreinte électrique...


Des personnes bien intentionnées ont essayé de lui répondre, sur le thème « Google et Facebook n’ont pas de prérogatives de puissance publique, pas le monopole de la violence légitime, nous ne risquons que la publicité ciblée ». Cette réponse paraissait un peu courte (Twitter oblige).


Deux livres du même auteur permettent d’éclairer ce débat : « Réseaux sociaux et Cie » (2013) et « Surveillance. Le risque totalitaire » (2014). Deux bouquins symétriques sur les pratiques de l’Etat (surtout les Etats-Unis) et celles des entreprises privées (surtout américaine). Sur la quatrième de couverture, « Franck Leroy », l’auteur, est présenté comme un « consultant en architecture des réseaux informatiques ». ...

Do Not Track - série documentaire personnalisée consacrée à la vie privée dont vous êtes le héro

Do Not Track est une série documentaire personnalisée consacrée à la vie privée et à l'économie du Web. Découvrez ce que le Web sait sur vous… en partageant vos données avec nous.

Do Not Track explore les différentes manières dont le Web moderne enregistre et traque nos activités, nos publications et nos identités. Pour vous aider à comprendre comment vos informations sont utilisées et collectées… nous vous demandons de participer avec vos données. Oui, vos données. Ça peut sembler paradoxal, mais c’est en vous prêtant au jeu que vous pourrez comprendre l’implication du tracking – non seulement pour vous, mais pour vos amis ou votre famille. Quelle est la valeur cachée derrière chacun de vos clics ? Que se passe-t-il sans que vous vous en rendiez compte et sans votre consentement ? Soyez curieux et reprenez le contrôle.

Toutes les deux semaines, un épisode personnalisé abordera un sujet différent : de nos téléphones portables aux réseaux sociaux, de la publicité personnalisée au big data.

Leur point commun ? Utiliser les méthodes et outils des trackers pour vous traquer pendant que vous les regardez.

« Dans l’ombre de la peur » : les premières pages de la bande dessinée sur le #bigdata par Michael Keller et Josh Neufeld | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Que pèse le respect de la vie privée au regard des stratégies technologiques et commerciales mises en place par ces géants de l’Internet ayant pour nom Google, Facebook et autre Apple ?

Le journaliste américain Michael Keller, spécialiste des nouveaux médias, et l’auteur de bande dessinée Josh Neufeld ont enquêté dans les méandres du big data, ces données personnelles que recueillent en nombre phénoménal un petit nombre d’entreprises privées ayant pignon sur le Web.

 

Ils ont interviewé des chercheurs, des universitaires, des hommes politiques pour les besoins d’une plongée documentée, non dénuée d’humour, au cœur de ces pratiques qui n’en finissent pas de poser question. Leur album sortira le 14 mars aux éditions Çà et Là. Nous vous proposons d’en lire en exclusivité les 30 premières pages.

The Agency At The End Of Civilisation by Stanza /// #mediaart #dataart

The artwork “The Agency At The End Of Civilisation” is a real time interpretation of the data of the Internet of Cars project using the UK car number…

 

What I am doing, which is sort of new ground, is that I’m hacking access to a network and re-appropriating the data and information, and I am re-contextualizing it to give it a wider meaning. I want to show that you can do something positive with this data. And as I say data is the medium of the age.”

Introduction par Monsieur Philippe Busquin, Ministre d’Etat et Commissaire européen chargé de la Recherche scientifique de 1999 à 2004

L'Internet promeut nos libertés et est source de possibilités extraordinaires. En même temps, les technologies de l'information et de la communication créent des risques majeurs vis à vis de nos libertés et de la protection de notre vie privée.

La surveillance sous toutes ses formes est devenue commune et les grands acteurs de l’internet et les États ne s’en privent pas. Les révélations de Snowden ont ouvert bien des yeux. Les technologies qui permettent de nous espionner peuvent pourtant aussi servir à nous protéger. Mais où trouver l’équilibre ?

Privacy International | committed to fighting for the right to #privacy across the world | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

We investigate the secret world of government surveillance and expose the companies enabling it. We litigate to ensure that surveillance is consistent with the rule of law. We advocate for strong national, regional, and international laws that protect privacy. We conduct research to catalyse policy change. We raise awareness about technologies and laws that place privacy at risk, to ensure that the public is informed and engaged.

To ensure that this right is universally respected, we strengthen the capacity of our partners in developing countries and work with international organisations to protect the most vulnerable.

Privacy International envisions a world in which the right to privacy is protected, respected, and fulfilled. Privacy is essential to the protection of autonomy and human dignity, serving as the foundation upon which other human rights are built. In order for individuals to fully participate in the modern world, developments in law and technologies must strengthen and not undermine the ability to freely enjoy this right.

Nowadays, we continually share data: a message via WhatsApp, a picture on Instagram, an update on Facebook or an e-mail through Gmail. With whom do we really share this data? And how can we make sure that our personal data stay strictly personal?

 

This exhibition addresses issues of online privacy and digital surveillance. Next to several historical examples of encrypting, ‘Design my Privacy’ also shows some surprising contemporary strategies by more than 35 young designers and artists to maintain control over our data.

#CALL | HTMLLES #Festival 2016 - Terms of privacy /// #artcall #mediaart #artnumerique | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
deadline: January 4, 2016

Since 1997, The HTMlles has brought together artists, scholars, and activists passionate about critically engaging new technologies from a feminist perspective. The festival takes place biannually in Montreal, and its aim is to showcase cutting-edge projects produced by local and international artists. Each edition focuses on a specific theme and addresses urgent socio-political questions by pushing the boundaries of artistic and feminist practices.


The 12th edition of the festival will coincide with the 20th anniversary of Studio XX! To celebrate such a collective accomplishment, we launch our open call for proposals to local and international artists so that, together, we can continue to enact creative and critical feminist interventions in media arts and digital culture.

THEME : TERMS OF PRIVACY

Current discussions around privacy are shaped by the role new technologies play in enabling modern forms of individual, corporate, and state surveillance. In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) operates numerous global surveillance programs targeting governments, corporations, and civilians in the United States and abroad, and thus what everyone suspected became official: that we—tech consumers—are watched, listened to, traced, and monitored in real time via our gadgets and personal computers. As we speak or type, programs of mass surveillance gather our personal data and mega-data. Further, Snowden's leaked classified information revealed that the problem goes beyond the NSA, linking Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom in an intelligence alliance known as the “five-eyes”...

Courts docs show how Google slices users into “millions of buckets” | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The online giant probably knows more about you than the NSA — including things you might not even tell your mother...


The first law of selling is to know your customer. This simple maxim has made Google into the world’s largest purveyor of advertisements, bringing in more ad revenue this year than all the world’s newspapers combined. What makes Google so valuable to advertisers is that it knows more about their customers — that is to say, about you — than anyone else.

Where does Google get this knowledge? Simple. It watches most everything you do and say online  — reads your email (paying special attention to purchase confirmations), peers over your shoulder while you browse, knows what you watch on YouTube, and — by tracking your devices — even knows where you are at this very moment. ...

CCTV2.0 - interactive installation by Martin Reiche LASN - #mediaart #privacy

CCTV2.0 is an interactive audio/video installation that gathers live video streams from a venue and starts to detect people on them in real-time based on a huge database of Facebook profiles. While the detection itself has very low accuracy, the simple act of detecting some person and connecting it to some profile tells the spectator how easy a misuse of information is: not identity theft is the problem, it is identity propagation.


People who have nothing to do with the installation, the venue, even the city, are tagged in a publicly accessible video stream (and a log) while the mechanisms for detection are not revealed. CCTV2.0 thus deals with the problem of non-reproducibility of evidence that is electronically gathered and wants to reflect on the harmfulness of global communication systems.
