INI Seminar Room 1
The operation of the consumer finance industry has important social and economic consequences, and is heavily regulated. The industry makes millions of decisions based on personal data that must be protected. The people who create these decision processes seek to make industry decision making practices as rational and well informed as possible, but sometimes this work is surprisingly hard. Major difficulties occur around the issues of linkage and anonymisation. I will describe how some of these practically important issues arise and play out. This is intended as a motivating example for developments in data linkage and anonymisation (no maths involved).
