Proxies for Privacy in Ambient Systems
The increased use of social-network services for sharing personal information has made it easier to gain awareness of each other. It has also increased the interest in privacy issues, especially since it is not always clear to the provider of information who gains access to personal data and to what end this data is being used. Many interesting ideas and proposals have appeared to address the issue of privacy vs. information sharing. One of the most interesting is perhaps the notion of minimizing asymmetry of information flow.
