Position:  PhD Position on the Economics of Personal Data
Most of the web that we know operates under a “free-service in exchange for collecting your personal data” business model. The aim of this PhD position is to study, develop, and demonstrate alternative “human-centric” economics models in which end users may negotiate, retract, and receive (micro)payments for granting access to their personal data. The work will include both theoretical questions, such as: “How to define the value of personal data?”, “How to split it in a multilateral value chain?”, as well as practical ones, such as: “How to implement such an economy over existing web technologies and frameworks?”, “How to validate its properties using real data in a realistic setting?”.
Position Requirements
- Degree in Computer Science or related field.
- Strong background in algorithms, big data, machine learning, and information theory.
- Some background on economics.
- Strong programming and data analysis skills using recent technologies and frameworks.
Required Language Skills:
  • English - Very good
