When your personal data goes online, the whole world can suddenly have access to your most sensitive information.
In UnAnonym you explore what can happen when scientific data that is not anonymized thoroughly gets published. During this workshop we will present the educational game experience, where the researchers will gather in small groups to look for unanonymized information in an interview to then use that data for further research on the interviewee and their network.
The concept of educational gaming is to both entertain and deliver fun gameplay, but also to raise thought-provoking questions and offer answers and points of discussion. It won’t feel like the usual workshop, but much rather an interactive game where you need to work with your peers to solve the riddle.
In the end, this session should leave everyone with a new understanding of the process of anonymizing research data – why it is important to do and how to do it.
