PDEC's mission:

There are different efforts + projects. As a consequence, there are also different local perspectives.

PDEC's desire is not to build any concrete things (trust frameworks, technology, etc), but:

  • to coordinate existing efforts, and help finding each other
  • to follow, track and educate about existing efforts and different views
  • to facilitate dialogue between the actors
  • to support new startups/initiatives to realize the vision
  • to bring together sociologists, technologists, lawyers, etc. working on personal data
  • to include people who are new to the circle but doing related work

Some concrete topics during the session:

  • multi-jurisdiction issues
  • multi-disciplinary groups with interdisciplinary focus
  • defining the new business layer (not just legal layer)
  • common elements of a trust framework
  • technologists (want to push things forward?) + lawyers (want to push things back?) need to work together!
  • how do we represent individuals?
  • legal practice becomes law
  • role of regulation (managing risk)
  • look at existing regulator models for telecom + postal interop
  • what is institutionally required for certain services + systems
  • what can individuals do? where are groups + capital required and where are they not required?
  • relationsip of IdPs to each other and to nation-states who set policies

Kaliya presented the "Personal Data Ecosystem Landscape" diagram explaining the conceptual relationships between different parties in the PDE.
