Consultation meeting on the ” Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure”
21 April, 2017
(Geneva, Switzerland) Raising the Floor (RtF-I), has invited data privacy, ethics, security experts as well as UN representatives, to participate in a consultation meeting on the establishment of a Data Ethics Council for the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII). The GPII project is an international collaboration to make information technology, and the content and services it delivers, easily accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities and those experiencing difficulties due to aging and lack of digital literacy.
The purpose of the meeting is to assist RtF-I in forming a “Data Ethics Council” that would oversee all of the data collected as part of efforts to create and operate the GPII project and to explore the viability of such an approach for others.
Global Pulse is providing expert support to the effort and will deliver introductory remarks on the challenges and opportunities of big data and technology. Many of the members of the Global Pulse Privacy Advisory group members will also be part of consultations. A second consultation meeting will take place on April 21, 2017 in Washington, DC on the margins of the IAPP Global Privacy Summit.
This is a closed meeting.
