The Right to Be Forgotten: Manage your online persona
The 2016 IT Challenge theme was the Right to be Forgotten: manage your online persona. The students were asked to create a smart mobile device app to help track and manage personal data (bearing in mind the “Right to be Forgotten” and related topics) – from the perspective of an individual, a citizen, an employee or a consumer.
They should first of all provide a solution to track and identify one’s personal data. The next step was to devise solutions to either secure, filter or bring added value to this data – through actions, functionalities or objectives that might be useful to protect personal data eg. automatic de-subscription, notifications, deletion, or ensuring results do not appear in search engine top hits.
