What will happen in your session?
This workshop offers an holistic space to create digital tools and environments in which consent underlies all aspects, from the way they are developed, to how data is stored and accessed, and to the way interactions happen between users. Prototyping consent into our tools will make them more fair and unbiased. Using a specific designed prototyping loop, teams quickly hypothesize, develop, test and assess ideas consentful data prototypes. It enables us to see the shortcomings of our ideas and how our concept can be improved. Participants will likely get new insights during the process or encounter things they did not expect before.
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
Our digital identities consist of personal data existing in relationship with others. Our digital lives are frequently at risk being harmed. Users of technology generally lack a good understanding of the risks our digital identities face on a daily basis. We need to (re)define our understanding of digital consent. Those who are most adversely affected by design decisions tend to have the least influence on how those decisions are made. We need to develop consent-based responses into our data tools. Harm and violence will happen if we do not design with consent from the ground up. It the session we present and evolve a specifically consent-based design method for data technologies, and strengthening networks to address shared and common challenges.
If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.
A projector (preferably).
Jumping in hear to telling you we're accepting this session into Mozfest 2018. Looking forward to meeting you in London during October. Emails will be escalated shortly, watch out for those from our team.
