at a time of great debate about privacy, triggered by the case Cambridge Analytica, Microsoft working on a project to give users control over personal information with some sort of database. It's called Project Bali and aims to resolve the concept of Inverse Privacy, first published by researchers at Microsoft in 2014: personal data is a third party has access to private while inversely didn't make the original owner.
The project-says site Zdnet-should make it possible to aggregate the personal data of various sites and store them within the database that is Project Bali. Users will also be able to view the data. Project Bali currently requires an access code to work and is currently available as a private beta, so unofficially and experimentation.
A similar idea was the inventor of the web Tim Berners Lee, who a few months ago presented the draft Solid. Is a platform that allows you to decentralize data management, leaving users free to decide where their information go, who reads them and which apps can access it.
