Event. Open Knowledge Finland, Aalto University and FING are teaming up to host MyData 2016, an international event bringing together up to 1000 participants from businesses, research community, civil society, government and local communities to Helsinki from August 31st – Sept 2. Subscribe to the newsletter in order to get informed about tickets and programme.
The event is intended to open and expand the international community around human centric personal data management. We want to build a truly international forum for piloting projects that innovate around the ethical use of personal data, helping companies find solutions for complying with the regulation, and shedding light on the technical and legal trends in personal data management for the general public.
The event organizing team is calling for suggestions and ideas for what people would like to see at the event, including anything ranging from speakers, sessions, topics, relevant contacts or organizations, evening programs, or any other ideas, big or small.
The event will be held in the Aalto LUME Media Center, the same location as the popular Open Knowledge Festival (OK Fest) in 2012. Members of the OK Fest core organizing team are behind the upcoming MyData event, so participants can expect the same community-driven, co-created, festival-feel (plus a revival of the Open Sauna) next August in Finland’s capital. Expect hacking, lively discussions, the birth of new ideas, and the launch of new commercial products. BYOD (Bring Your Own Data)!
