Back Privacy Alerts
Would it be ever possible to empower on-line social network users to control the confidentiality of their data?
The challenge is to alert and make users aware of which non-confidential information about themselves can lead to the discovery of their confidential information. The project is radical because data mining and machine learning techniques will not be used to characterize traits in social network users, but to enable users themselves to regulate the usage of their data and we believe that social-network providers would also benefit from offering users this control.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation of Spain (MICINN) (grant number TIN2013-49814-EXP).
