Forget About Privacy … or Not?

Abstract : This book chapter reflects the content of one of the 2017 IFIP summer school’s workshops. This workshop’s focus was chiefly around whether one should forget about privacy as a basic human right. The workshop was co-led by members of the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP)’s working group on social accountability and computing. The challenge was proffered that today’s commercial push for free trade in people’s data, supported by information technologies, requires counterbalancing efforts to be made from the public interest point of view. During the workshop, this preoccupation with the public interest was addressed through a number of different questions, which in turn inspired in-depth discussions. Each of the four questions/topics covered is handled here in a separate section of the book chapter. The four points are illustrated through images and illustrations that have often been drawn from works from the fields of art, education, ethics, film, literature, and philosophy.Note: Many of these themes are among the core subjects of the conference entitled This Changes Everything [1], which is the thirteenth in a series of Human Choice and Computers (HCC) (HCC13) to be held in Poznan, Poland, on 19–21 September 2018, and run by IFIP.
