BBC announce personal data store trial

A research and development team at the BBC ( a separate unit from the Daleks) have been working on an idea proposed by Tim Berners-Lee in 2017 to store personal data on a device you can control. Now, 2-years later, the BBC announced where they are at with an early prototypeThe idea is you keep your personal data stored on an edge device under your control, either a phone app or a physical device. This then implements three strands of what they call Human Data Interaction (HDI)—legibility, agency and negotiation.

  • Legibility - See and understand what your data is + what's happening to it
  • Agency - Control what data is kept and what happens to it
  • Negotiability - See and control data use + get value from it

A trial is underway with Netflix, Spotify and the BBC.
