  1. 1. Cross-Disciplinary Lessons for the Future Internet Anne-Marie Oostveen, Isis Hjorth, Brian Pickering, Michael Boniface, Eric Meyer, Cristobal Cobo and Ralph Schroeder Future Internet Assembly, Aalborg, 11 May 2012© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 1
  2. 2. SESERV project objectives some people some people study the Internet build the Internet those that study and those that build need to talk June 2011 SESERV workshop at University of Oxford where experts in FI technology engaged with social scientists, economists, policy makers and other stakeholders.© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 2
  3. 3. Topics of discussion • Content analysis on 2 recent reports (Towards a Future Internet and Social Impact of ICT Studies): Societal concerns for the Future Internet  Regulation  E-democracy  Privacy and data protection  Digital Citizenship  Online Identity  Digital Inclusion  Green Issues  Online Communities  Security of Communications  Internet of Things  Content Regulation  Consumers and Suppliers  Cloud Computing  Distributed Knowledge  Trust  Cybercrime and Cyber law • 98 representatives from FP7 FI Projects rated the relevance. • 6 key issues: privacy, online identity, security of communications, online communities, internet of things, cloud computing.© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 3
  4. 4. Cross-cutting socio-economic challenges 1. Call for increased transparency 2. Call for more user-centricity and control 3. Continuing need for further multi-disciplinary bridging 4. Striking a balance between extremes in debates and design 5. Facilitating the development of digital literacy 6. Addressing the lack of common vocabularies and definitions 7. Need for clarity about digital rights and digital choice 8. Enabling global regulatory frameworks© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 4
  5. 5. Ad 1. Increased transparency • Systems & applications should offer end-users tools that allow for filtering of information and sharing of content. • End-users should know exactly who has access to, for example, the contents of their online social network. • Transparency also relates to ISPs and data storage, particularly in move towards cloud-based services. • Many companies run services on 3rd party infrastructure which is not sufficiently transparent. • Providers could publish monthly statistics on attacks. • End-users able to identify where and how their data is stored and how it is, or will be used.© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 5
  6. 6. Ad. 2 User-centricity & control • Need for increased user-centricity in design of applications. • Give users some means of influencing systems on ongoing basis. • Creative uses could feed back into systems to improve them and innovate further. • Latent scope for more user control: • Users should be able, in a more granular manner, to opt-out of services or elements of services • A range of different choices for how user data is stored • Better ways of assessing and controlling security risks© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 6
  7. 7. Ad. 3 Multi-disciplinary bridging • Need for greater knowledge-exchange, dialogue, and collaboration across and beyond academic fields, industry, developers, designers and users. • Create frameworks for knowledge exchange • Facilitate connections between, for example, technical and legal analysts to avoid siloization or pillarization. • Multi-disciplinary engagement between human resources and institutions from early stages of technology development and design© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 7
  8. 8. Ad. 4 Balance in debate & design • Call for more balanced and nuanced approaches in design avoiding dichotomized thinking. • For example: an acknowledgement of identity as existing on a continuum from stable to dynamic. • For example: eHealth privacy practices. It might be beneficial to seek a middle ground that allows proportionate access rather than relying on either laissez-faire approaches or over-formalization (extreme regulation) of access. • For example: Discourses on privacy tend to lack balance (IoT often perceived as ‘big brother’).© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 8
  9. 9. Ad. 5 Digital Literacy • Digital literacy skills will equip users with more sophisticated tools for managing and understanding identity in online and hybrid contexts and thus solve some of the problems encountered with privacy concerns • Security risks could be managed better if best practice guidelines were available and there was more awareness.© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 9
  10. 10. Ad. 6 Common vocabulary • Cloud computing: current definitions are diverging. Some refer exclusively to infrastructure, while others include social uses and online activities. • Internet of Things: definitions are currently too academic, lack focus on design, and are therefore difficult to apply in technology development. • Related to the call for multi-disciplinary bridging and collaboration, there is a need for an adequate vocabulary and definitions that can be applied across sectors and contexts© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 10
  11. 11. Ad. 7 Digital rights & choice • There is a need to clarify digital rights and digital choices: what level of anonymity should be granted, and to whom, and in which context? • To which extent should digital rights include the ‘right to be forgotten’? • Digital choice can be exemplified in relation to the Internet of Things, where off-line alternatives should be available (the right to not make use of technologies without being penalized).© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 11
  12. 12. Ad. 8 Global frameworks • Global regulatory frameworks are particularly pertinent to the discussions of security, online communities and cloud computing. • There should be consistency across jurisdictions for data breaches, as well as for anonymity. • Increased trans-national legislation could ensure that providers are not discouraged from operating in certain countries.© 2011 The SESERV Consortium 12
