Session Format

Onsite at the venue (with online moderator for questions and comments from remote participants)
Specific Issues for Discussion
Intention in boosting the development of artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies accelerates the needs of personal data, while some controllers using no consents or vague purposes harm the trusts in the data ecosystem. Taiwan has faced the mandatory secondary use of health insurance data for more than a decade. In the fireside chat, Taiwan Association for Human Rights (TAHR) will share the experience in working with different stakeholders to file the constitutional litigation. The court’s decision released in 2022 set a minimum standard of opt-out rights and the regulation of massive personal databases. Technical and legal experts will be invited to discuss the sphere of public interests, pseudonymization and data subjects’ rights.
Describe the Relevance of Your Session to APrIGF
From medical treatments to daily app usage, health data is collected and depicts a portion of how a person might be. The discussion of AI and medical research ethics may not be sufficient for mitigating the harms toward data exploitation. To fill the gap for exercising data subjects rights and processing sensitive data in accountable ways, big players in governments and private sectors should include more voices from civil society. In 2024, several policy and legislation plans are ongoing, including the management of health insurance and social welfare data, the design of the future data protection authority and the revisement of the Personal Data Protection Act. We are gathering feedback and materials for preparing the next step of advocacy.
