- What is privacy?
- How different the concept of privacy is across cultures?
- Is the "importance" of privacy growing over time?
- Is "privacy consciousness" growing over time?
- What makes people more privacy conscious? fame, seeing that their data is being misused/used against them, having something to hide, what else?
- When I read about some of the medical experiments run up until a few decades ago on people without their consent, I am shocked! I wonder if in some decades(?) from now, we will also be shocked by the way people's data (e.g. mobile phone data) is used now and analyzed for research (or other) purposes. Will we see this in the future as some evident breach of privacy? Will I be shocked remembering what we are doing now with this data? (a paradigm shift).
- Is privacy different for different observers?
- Perception of privacy
How does change in environment influence the perception of privacy for different individuals? (we protect our privacy ==> people won't have information about us which they can use against us. but what if you are in a new and/ or temporary environment? I first thought of this when I traveled to Japan, there i was so disconnected from "my world" that i could do things which I usually avoid). Imagine you are among the first settlers of Mars, what will privacy mean there and how will you perceive it?
- Why does a celebrity consider privacy differently from an everyday person?
- Idea: Normally we don't mind stuff about us being available, since no one will look too closely, and when they do look at individual parts, it looks normal. But if anyone dug deeper, I am sure they could find things which they can use against you. So does it basically come down to "what is the likelihood that someone will use knowledge about me against me?", and most people assume they are anonymous enough they are safe.
- Relation of privacy from: governments, commercial entities, other people.
- Political candidates in 10-50 years will have a major problem managing knowledge about their past life.
- Takes away freedom of youth?
- Archival and searchability of data. (The fact that data never goes away anymore is a major source of these problems).
- Privacy vs. confidentiality
- Quantification of privacy
- Differential privacy
- Anonymization of data.
- Deanonymization of data.
