iRights.Lab launches the research project DaSKITA, in cooperation with the TU Berlin and the start-up Dilecy
What personal data does a digital application use and who is able to access it? Together with the TU Berlin (Technical University of Berlin) and the start-up Dilecy, we are developing AI-based concepts and tools that will increase data usage transparency.
Transparency and information rights are core components of modern data protection legislation and are indispensable for consumers to be able handle their own data in a self-determined and confident manner. In everyday life, however, many users are hampered in exercising these rights by complicated terms and conditions and privacy statements or by hurdles set by app and platform operators.
The goal of DaSKITA (Datensouveränität durch KI-basierte Transparenz und Auskunft; Data Sovereignty through AI-Based Transparency and Information) is thus to develop a technical prototype that automatically collects information about the use of personal data and makes it available in various user-friendly forms: as a plug-in for desktop browsers, smartphones or via smart home assistants. To maximize the utility and user-friendliness of the final product, the project team will receive regular feedback from consumers throughout the development process.
You can find more information about DaSKITA on our project website.
DaSKITA is funded by the Bundesministerium für Justiz und Verbraucherschutz (Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection) on the basis of a resolution of the Deutscher Bundestag (Bundestag).
