The latest in data portability technology will be showcased this week as the second cohort of DAPSI accelerator participants display their cutting edge solutions at a digital event.
The数据可移植性和服务孵化器（DAPSI）project is an incubator programme aimed at finding and developing the most cutting edge technology to solve the issues in data breaches and allow the way forward for a decentralized web.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force since 25 May 2018. Specifically,Article 20目的是使公民更容易拥有与一个服务提供商直接传输给另一个提供商的任何数据。
The teams on the DAPSI incubator are working on interoperable formats that enable data portability to combat the issues that have arisen from this move.
Dapsiwas formed, under theEuropean Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, to create incubation opportunities for innovators to research and develop solutions to the increased issues surrounding the portability of data, data breaches and the personal ownership of one’s data. Despite GDPR having been in effect since May 2018, there are still issues with the portability of data online and seamless solutions with ‘interoperable formats’ are required.
Karolina Mojzesowicz, Deputy Head ofUnit Data Protection at the European Commission, will deliver the keynote on data portability as a huge societal issue challenging before the DAPSI winners pitch their projects.
Among the fourteen winning projects showcased you’ll hear fromCryptPadan encrypted collaboration suite,Orvium, an open access and multidisciplinary publishing platform for scientific and academic publications andXPORTA, which improves access and portability of XMPP accounts between providers.
The winners cover a smorgasbord of solutions to the challenges of data portability, sovereignty, transparency, compatibility, interoperability.
Rounding off the event attendees will be treated to a round table discussion, moderated by TechEU’s very own Editor-in-chief, Robin Wauters.He’ll be guiding a discussion between industry expertsPhilippe Page, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Human Colossus Foundation andAnne-Sophie Taillandier, Data & AI TeraLab Platform Director at the Institut Mines-Télécom Business School and former DAPSI winners includingMehdi Medjaoui, CEO of Alias and Carola Compá, VP business developer at DPella.
