Just a quick note on progress with the privacy ideation cards.
We are extending the work from our 2015 CHI paper “Playing the Legal Card” (Tom Rodden, Ewa Luger, Mike Golembewski and me) in both the UK/Europe and the US.
On the European side, we will conduct studies in both industry and education contexts to further develop the concept of using ideation cards to engage with data protection issues in system design. We will continue to work together with Ewa and Mike at Microsoft Research Cambridge, the Mixed Reality Lab (Tom, me and from next year, Neha Gupta), and external industry partners over the next year. We have a project page on the Mixed Reality Lab website that will develop as the project progresses. There is also the general project website, where cards are available.
On the US side, as a mirror to the EU/UK work, there is now a US National Science Foundation funded project hosted at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering at New York University. The title is “Privacy Compliance by Design: Ideation Techniques to Facilitate System Design Compliant with Privacy Laws and Regulations” and the press release is here. The project has $175,000 from an NSF EAGER Grant. Dr Sameer Patil at NYU will work with Leslie Fosh of MRL, with partnerships at Intel, Microsoft and University of California, Irvine.
