Making the public more aware of their privacy online and how their information is used is the goal of researchers at Trinity College Dublin at events to mark Data Protection Day 2016 on Thursday. Experts in computer science and encryption will give free workshops to help people learn how to use tools to help them to protect their communications from prying eyes. They will also launch a tool that aims to show people how big their “digital footprint” is and how far their data reaches. To read more, click here...

Your digital footprint relates to the trail and tracks (footprints) you leave on the web. It extends beyond social media applications and reaches into any data point that relates to you as a person. Why should I care? Your digital footprint can be split into two categories: Your implicit footprint and your explicit footprint. Together they represent who you are in the digital world. The part you need to be aware of is, if what you think you are representing to be, actually stacks up with whom people think you are.

Why should I care about my digital footprint?


 

ADAPT researchers will showcase the Bigfoot Digital Footprint project at this year’s International Ploughing Championships. The major event will see thousands of people from all corners of the globe travel to Tullamore, Offaly for Europe’s largest annual outdoor event. This year, attendees will be given the opportunity to engage with the Bigfoot app to determine their own digital footprints, which reflect their online presence. For further details, follow the link...


 

The lecture will focus on current and future issues related to social media, social media ethics & privacy, as well as other issues such as counterfeit news and cyberbullying. The focus, however, is on the tension between perceived and real online behavior, which in turn encourages users to better understand the context and, on the other hand, to consciously control their digital footprint. The different types of footprints and profiles are discussed on the basis of ongoing research in the context of the social media data awareness campaign and the research project "bigfoot". This is to understand the differences between what you mean online and what you really do. to be promoted. To read more follow this link...


 

The ADAPT Centre, formerly known as CNGL has confirmed to ITRealms that its weeklong Lifelogging is headed to the city of Dublin Science Gallery. ITRealms reports that Lifelogging week has splited into lab, big foot and exhibition. According to a press statement made available to ITRealms, these three upcoming events were designed to help participants understand how much of their data is "out there" and learn strategies to make them a little more secure.

Researchers in Dublin, Ireland, have developed an app that can assess how well someone's online persona matches their true nature. The Bigfoot app is designed to analyze a user's social engagements such as their likes and music tastes, and then visualize these via widgets. The tool then asks users a few questions about their social media behavior, such as "Would you sell your data if you could, and for how much?" To read more, click here...

BigFoot Digital Footprint: How Big Is Your Digital Footprint?

Cavan and Monaghan Science Festival 2016


 

Computer scientists from Trinity College Dublin have developed an app – Bigfoot – that will allow them to assess how accurately the online footprints we all leave represent our personalities in the real world. The app was created in collaboration with artificial intelligence experts AYLIEN and researchers at the ADAPT centre, which is based in Trinity. Their ‘lifelogging’ tool will be showcased at Science Gallery Dublin’s latest exhibition, which considers how personal data is shared and used over the Internet. Visitors will be able to take part in a walk-in laboratory that uses the Bigfoot app, so as to discover a bit more about the signals they are sending out online. Click here to read more...
