More dig­i­tal sov­er­eign­ty for con­sumers* through AI

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).
