Data Provenance is the third of Future Agenda’s ‘World in 2030’ foresights. In our data abundant, interconnected world mutual dependencies are often at the heart of key infrastructure. In this ever-expanding environment, it is vital to ensure that data systems are trusted. This is where data provenance comes in. Knowing the origin of data can help to assess its quality, accuracy and reliability. It also allows us to assess value and ownership and could contribute to the redistribution of profit when data is resold or reused. But does ubiquitous provenance mean that we will never be able to do anything, even remotely privately, ever again? And will the benefits of greater cyber security be an adequate compensation for this?
Drawn from multiple expert discussions around the world, this foresight is one of 50 looking at the key issues for the next decade that are being shared throughout 2020.
