Today, as we work, consume, move around, we almost inevitably ‘produce’ data. In addition to this exponential growth in Big Data, to all the data which comes directly from the human activity, there is also the data produced by connected objects, which are more and more numerous, as well as the metadata, that is to say the data generated automatically in the context of transactions and communications via the Internet. This module is an introduction to the general philosophy of data protection instruments and ethics by design. A global picture will be given to the student, including the phenomena that lead to a new state of computer law. Topics such as “Ethical Criticism of the Algorithm” and “The Right to Data Protection” will be addressed.
