Time and location:

Designing for Children's Rights is an independent association registered in Denmark with international members that collectively advocate for ethics to be implemented as a part of the design process when planning products, services and experiences for babies, children, adolescents and teenagers. We initiated a guide which has some principles, methods and practices that can be applied to a design process. Please visit the website to receive a more comprehensive understanding on the topic https://childrensdesignguide.org
Our goal for the workshop is to define ethical and practical measures around data that can be applied and integrated within the guide. As the guide is in its inception, we are looking to develop it more through the exploration via the impact of data collection, rights, privacy and protection from an adult’s (parent, guardian, educator, caretaker, etc) and a child’s perspective (we have used the umbrella term child but cover the following groups: babies, children, adolescents and teenagers). Taking into consideration individuals who interact with either of these groups. We would be grateful to use the hive mind of the attendees from the MyData 2018 conference to contribute with their skills, expertise and experience to help empower and protect these sections of society.

We expect there to perhaps be five of us or more depending on the attendee workshop size.

Tilaisuudessa kuulemme alustuksia koskien tulevaisuuden hajautettuja liiketoimintaverkkoja. Lisäksi jaamme kokemuksia ja näkökulmia siitä kuinka hajautetut liiketoimintaverkot voivat parantaa yritysten kilpailukykyä Suomessa ja kansainvälisesti. Taneli Tikka kutsuu suomalaisia organisaatioita kuulemaan Vaken tavoitteista ja suunnitelmista. Tilaisuuteen on kutsuttu korkean tason päättäjiä ja vaikuttajia suomalaisista yrityksistä ja julkishallinnon organisaatioista.

Speculative Data Futures is a half-day pre-conference workshop for MyData 2018 that sets the participants into conference mood. Particular attention will be paid to the following questions: What if people had the right and the possibility to freely access and use their own personal data? How would that affect and shape personal data futures?
The workshop has limited space, please sign up asap. Participants are expected to do a short pre-assignment for the workshop: these will be used for setting the agenda of the day. The pre-assignment deadline is August 19th.
Date: Tuesday 28 August
Time: 14:00-17:00 (1h meet & greet over lunch followed by 4h workshop)
Venue: Helsinki Hall of Culture, Sturenkatu 4, exact space TBC
Capacity: max. 40 participants
IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity with over 420,000 global members in more than 160 countries. It represents the heart of the global engineering community, providing the world's leading publications and conferences on technical aspects of technology, as well as being a technical standards developer through its IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA). The IEEE-SA has entered into a collaboration with MyData for an invite-only event focused on fostering relationships with best-in-class global thinkers around personal data and identity.
Konstantinos Karachalios, managing director, IEEE-SA) will deliver a keynote speech at MyData 2018. IEEE-SA will host its invite-only workshop in conjunction with MyData organizers. Our goal is to help Engineers and programmers understand the value of evolved, MyData-centric thinking regarding personal data and identity.
The IEEE-SA is committed to helping to mobilize trust to action through its portfolio of initiatives spanning Digital Identity, Inclusion & Trust in Agency, The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems, and its Standardization Initiatives. Advocating the same ideals of MyData, the IEEE-SA aims to help put people at the center of their information so they can have access and control their data on how it is shared and utilized.
For our event, IEEE-SA seeks to collaborate with key members of the MyData community on our portfolio of global initiatives focused on personal data and identity, while learning more deeply about the efforts of MyData and its community. We welcome the insights and collaboration of attendees to help create a roadmap for best integration of the MyData and engineering communities so we can expedite the goals of evolved identity together, especially for children to safeguard their digital and virtual future.
Goals for the Workshop:
Understanding the difficulties with creating a “one size fits all” global solution, the Workshop will focus on providing general best practices for evolved personal data / identity recommendations that can be adapted based on country-centric and contextual considerations.
We realize this requires a collective and comprehensive approach to achieve the genuine impact that we all seek. We also appreciate the existing efforts of MyData and the larger communities fostering evolved identity and personal data. Our hope is to expedite and grow the excellent work that has already been done.

This one-day workshop, which is co-organised by Forum Virium Helsinki (FVH), the City of Helsinki and Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) with support of EIT Digital, aims at identifying the benefits and challenges of mydata and data for informed decision-making in cities.
The first part of the session will identify how citizens’ data can be protected, while enabling innovation based on mydata and data with firsthand experiences from the City of Helsinki.
The second part of the workshop gives an overview of how the so-called OASC Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms - a baseline set of standards and principles for smart cities - can contribute to innovation and procurement based on standards. As an example for standards-based innovations, the Cedus City Enabler will demonstrate how an open source data mining technology can help cities to detect and visualise data and mydata from public and private sources within the city.
Finally, all participants are invited to actively contribute to the third part of the session: an engaging workshop that aims at identifying smart city-related MyData and how to use it to support decision-making in cities, third-party services and cities in becoming more efficient.
The smart city day takes place on Tuesday, 28 August 2018, from 10:00 - 17:30 at Kulttuuritalo in Helsinki.
Part I: City Data and Privacy (organised by Forum Virium Helsinki)
Part II: Enabling the City (organised by OASC & EIT Digital)
Part III: Afternoon Workshop - smart city-related mydata (organised by FVH & City of Helsinki)

Open & Agile Smart Cities, Forum Virium Helsinki, City of Helsinki
Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) is a non-profit, international smart city network that is already today at the forefront of tomorrow’s standards for city data, services, and technology – and we work based on city needs with support from industry. Unlike any other city network, OASC is driven by implementation and focused on open platforms and citizen engagement OASC connects 117 smart cities globally organised in national networks from 24 countries and regions. Together, we strive to establish the Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms (MIMs) needed to create a smart city market. MIMs are simple and transparent mechanisms, ready to use in any city, regardless of size or capacity. By implementing MIMs cities increase the speed and openness of innovation and development, whilst decreasing cost and inefficiency. In essence, MIMs allow cities to engage in global digital transformation.
Forum Virium Helsinki is the City of Helsinki’s Innovation Unit. Together with companies, the science community and citizens Forum Virium Helsinki is making Helsinki the most functional smart city in the world. Forum Virium Helsinki supports Helsinki in its mission to become a platform for new services and innovations. We aim for data-enabled smart cities where data, whether open, closed or mydata, can create value for both individuals and society. Forum Virium’s wide project portfolio currently advances with MyData, consent management solutions and privacy impact assessment through pilots and pre-commercial procurement in projects like MySMARTLife, Synchronicity and Select for Cities.

“Invitation to sauna in a business setting may indicate that the negotiations have gone well and a joint business effort is anticipated.” (Wikipedia / Finnish Sauna)
Open Sauna celebration as part of the MyData 2018 evening programme will take place on Thursday 30th of August!
There are five million inhabitants and over three million saunas in Finland – an average of one per household. For Finnish people the sauna is a place to relax with friends and family, but also typical part of other kinds of social gatherings including business and work related events.
