Privacy policies and cookie banners are the most common ways businesses inform consumers about their privacy practices. But companies increasingly are looking beyond these legally-mandated notices to other ways of empowering people to understand and control the collection and use of their data. In this panel, we'll hear from innovators in this space, who will showcase their work and discuss their thinking about building transparency for the next decade.
10:15 am - 11:00 am
What's the Value of Privacy Notices?
Lorrie Cranor, FTC
Professor Omri Ben-Shahar, UChicago
Rob Sherman, Facebook - Moderator
Do privacy notices actually help people understand how their data will be collected, used and shared? Professor Lorrie Cranor, The FTC's Chief Technologist, has conducted research showing that providing privacy notices in a more straightforward and accessible way can help improve privacy decisionmaking. In a new paper, Professor Omri Ben-Sharar disagrees, finding that simplifying privacy disclosures did not affect people's understanding of the practices described or the choices they made regarding their data. In this session, Professors Cranor and Ben-Shahar, among the leading thinkers on these issues, will explore whether doubling down on privacy policies is the right answer and how businesses can meaningfully inform consumers about privacy practices.

Privacy and the Promise of Data

New uses of data and technology have real benefits for society. These benefits are often associated with a loss of privacy, but many organizations have found that data and technology can be used to improve the world while also creating real privacy gains. Some critics worry that a focus on traditional privacy frameworks can stifle the use of data for social good and remove opportunities for privacy innovation. This panel will look at how technology and leveraging data can create benefits for privacy and the broader world.
1:30 pm - 2:15 pm
Workshopping the Promise of Data
Let's solve the world's biggest problems with data. In a timed group workshop à la paper telephone, each table will collectively decide which problem they want to solve (overcome fertility issues? improve public safety?), how they can leverage data to solve that problem, and what procedures they will put in place to to ensure privacy is preserved.
Next, each group will give a 1-minute pitch in front of the entire conference, and we'll all vote on the most promising proposal. The winning group gets gear VRs* and eternal Privacy@Scale glory.
*Subject to applicable laws and regulations. Gear VRs will not be awarded to any public official or government employee without written confirmation from the winner’s ethics counsel that they are permitted to accept this prize.

The Data-Driven Economy Project
Eve Maler, ForgeRock
Emily Sharpe, Facebook - Moderator
A year ago, Facebook commissioned a program to explore how the data driven economy is evolving and to pose the question: how can we sustainably maximize the contribution personal data makes to the economy, to society, and, crucially, to individuals?
Having convened 175 cross-disciplinary experts through 21 roundtables in Europe, North & South America, and Asia-Pacific, we're publishing their insights in a final report coming out in June 2016. This session aims to provide a foretaste of the themes in that report.
Facebook's Privacy & Policy Manager Emily Sharpe will join in conversation with Eve Maler, a participant of the roundtable series, VP of Innovation & Emerging Technology at ForgeRock, and self-proclaimed singer of barbershop and bluesy-funky rock 'n' roll.

The systems we interact with on a daily basis are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and enabling a degree of customization and personalization that was previously unimaginable. People happily rely on technology every day – for directions using navigation software, to enable the easy transfer of money while preventing fraud, to find the lowest prices for products, and more. These technologies hold the promise of making the world more open and accessible to everyone. Assistive technology will help the blind and others with disabilities access what the rest of us take for granted and translation technology may help bring us closer together.
Despite these benefits, some experts raise concerns about automating the process of making decisions. This panel will examine how we can fully realize the benefits of this technology while promoting trust and reducing the risks that could limit this type of innovation.

9:15 am - 10:00 am: What's the value of privacy notices?
Professor Lorrie Cranor, the FTC's Chief Technologist
At IDEO – when it comes to designing for privacy we ask ourselves:
How might we design for trust?
Here are some user-centered design principles I have come up with:
-Don't try to fool me/Help me understand the trade-offs I'm making -Often contracts are written to protect the organization and not the user -Speak like a human - give me the gist! -There has been a movement from legalese to plain language
-However, plain language is still not understandable to your basic user -Remember – less than 40% of Americans have a college degree -Moving from plain language to human language -Making it more question & answer -Reasonable length -When possible, show me versus tell me -Move from text to visual
