D7.7: RFID, Profiling, and AmI

Constitutional democracy in a tagged world  Title:
 Summary and Conclusions



This means that the fair information principles of data protection legislation need to be reinterpreted or extended to cover the protection of individual persons against inclusion or exclusion on the basis of knowledge they are not aware of. The focus on protection of personal data does not cover the access to profiles inferred from anonymised data, nor does it provide the legal tools to contest the knowledge claims they contain. However, to have legal access and legal tools to contest invalid, irrelevant or unlawful use of profiles is useless if we do not have the technological infrastructure to enable this. The technological infrastructure that is being designed at this very moment to facilitate a fully operative AmI-environment must incorporate the technological means to allow adequate anticipation of the profiles that could be inferred from our behaviour. If the ‘Internet of Things’ turns our environment into an external autonomous nervous system, we may in fact need autonomic counter-profiling to give substance to our rights to oblivion, consent and contestation. This is what deliverables 7.8 and 9 should explore in more depth and detail.
