La CNIL n’a pas réussi à imposer un droit à l’oubli mondial à Google

“Il est problématique qu’un État soit en mesure d’imposer ses règles aux citoyens d’un autre pays (par exemple, le droit européen empêcherait des internautes chiliens de voir certains liens dans Google), surtout s’il s’agit de liens licites. Car dans ce cas, il faut s’attendre à la mécanique inverse, y compris d’États autoritaires ou dictatoriaux qui imposeraient leurs vues sur la recherche en Europe. Par ailleurs, un droit à l’oubli appliqué de façon trop large et automatique pose de vrais défis à un autre droit légitime, celui de l’accès à l’information. D’ailleurs, Google était soutenu dans sa démarche par la fondation Wikimédia, qui pilote l’encyclopédie en ligne Wikipédia, mais aussi le comité des reporters pour la liberté de la presse, l’ONG Article 19 et l’association de défense des libertés numériques EFF.”

Where and when local travel decreased from COVID-19 around the world

“Last week Buzzfeed News and the Los Angeles Times featured street-level visualizations of how COVID-19 is affecting traffic patterns in major cities around the world. The visualizations were generated from Mapbox Traffic data. For this post, we dug further into our telemetry data to show how much and where movement and local travel patterns have changed around the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“We use telemetry from all Mapbox SDKs to improve our map, directions, travel times, and search. We collect anonymous data about how users interact with the map to help developers build better location based applications. Location telemetry is critical to improving the map. We use the data to discover missing roads, determine turn restrictions, build speed profiles, and improve OpenStreetMap.”

These maps use phone data to track social distancing

“On Tuesday, a company called Unacast that collects and analyzes phone GPS location data launched a “Social Distancing Scoreboard” that grades, county by county, which residents are changing behavior at the urging of health officials. It uses the reduction in the total distance we travel as a rough index for whether we’re staying put at home.”

Full Third-Party Cookie Blocking and More | WebKit

“Safari continues to pave the way for privacy on the web, this time as the first mainstream browser to fully block third-party cookies by default. As far as we know, only the Tor Browser has featured full third-party cookie blocking by default before Safari, but Brave just has a few exceptions left in its blocking so in practice they are in the same good place. We know Chrome wants this behavior too and they announced that they’ll be shipping it by 2022.”

Swisscom aidera la Confédération à détecter les attroupements via les téléphones

“Les téléphones des Suisses seront ainsi utilisés pour lutter contre la pandémie. Les analyses seront effectuées uniquement dans les espaces publics, et pas, par exemple, dans les immeubles d’habitation ni les locaux d’entreprises. Ces données ne seront pas communiquées en direct à l’Office fédéral de la santé publique (OFSP), mais dans un délai de vingt-quatre heures environ. Les autorités ne sauront pas ce qui se passe en temps réel, mais avec un certain décalage. Le but sera sans doute de déterminer si des rassemblements illégaux ont lieu plusieurs jours de suite dans des endroits publics, afin, ensuite, de prendre des mesures pour les disperser.”

Yuval Noah Harari: the world after coronavirus

“Asking people to choose between privacy and health is, in fact, the very root of the problem. Because this is a false choice. We can and should enjoy both privacy and health. We can choose to protect our health and stop the coronavirus epidemic not by instituting totalitarian surveillance regimes, but rather by empowering citizens. In recent weeks, some of the most successful efforts to contain the coronavirus epidemic were orchestrated by South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. While these countries have made some use of tracking applications, they have relied far more on extensive testing, on honest reporting, and on the willing co-operation of a well-informed public.”

Real-time data show virus’s hit to global economic activity

A graphic with no description

“A group of former IMF chief economists warned last weekend that a global recession had already begun, but although economic activity is slowing sharply, much official data are out of date before they are even published, given the time they take to collate.  To make up for the lack of official information, the FT has compiled a set of alternative, high-frequency measures of economic activity for different sectors which give an early indication of what to expect when official data start to become available in the coming weeks. ”
