My clients at Aster Data are putting on a sequence of conferences called “Big Data Summit(s)”, and wanted me to keynote one. I agreed to the one in Washington, DC, on May 6, on the condition that I would be allowed to start with the same liberty and privacy themes I started my New England Database Summit keynote with. Since I already knew Aster to be one of the multiple companies in this industry that is responsibly concerned about the liberty and privacy threats we’re all helping cause, I expected them to agree to that condition immediately, and indeed they did.
On a rough-draft basis, my talk concept is:
Implications of New Analytic Technology in four areas:
- Liberty & privacy
- Data acquisition & retention
- Data exploration
- Operationalized analytics
I haven’t done any work yet on the talk besides coming up with that snippet, and probably won’t until the week before I give it. Suggestions are welcome.
If anybody actually has a link to a clear discussion of legislative and regulatory data retention requirements, that would be cool. I know they’ve exploded, but I don’t have the details.
