Presentation of the associate team

The accelerated growth of the Internet has outpaced our abilities as individuals to maintain control of our personal data. The recent advent of personalized services has lead to the massive collection of personal data and the construction of detailed profiles about users. However, users have no information about the data which constitute its profile and how they are exploited by the different entities (Internet companies, telecom operators, ...). This lack of transparency gives rise to ethical issues such as discrimination or unfair processing. In this associate team, we propose to strengthen the complementary nature and the current collaborations between the Inria Privatics group and UQAM to advance research and understanding on data and the algorithmic transparency and accountability.
