Data silos : the SPD wants to force companies to Share their data

If it goes according to the plans of the SPD, you need to share larger digital companies in the future, a portion of their data with their competitors. According to a discussion paper for a "data-for-all act", the daily mirror.

The proposed law is directed against the emergence of Data monopolies, and should ensure more innovation in the digital industry. The core of the idea is that the possession of large amounts of data in the hands of only a few companies can lead to a Two-class society in the digital industry. Who has already over mountains of data that can train the Algorithms to be more effective than other market participants, the offer is improving and, ultimately, its own position of dominance continue to expand.

no longer, however, Would be these data in a disguised Form for any available, there would be such an advantage. Now all could work on the Basis of the same data to develop their own business ideas and to improve.

According to the present plans, the SPD may in the future be enshrined in law, "that data are to be regarded as common property, generally make a use accessible to." This mobility included, for example, and spatial data, however, in "fully anonymised and aggregated Form."

competition and progress

The data should be and then both the private as well as business users. Whether this is the task of a trust or a Foundation, and what supervision is spring-authority leader, remains in the discussion paper is open.

"for Us, it is about opening up the Power of big data silos in the potential for competition and social progress," says Saskia esque, digital expert of the SPD group in the Bundestag. "I have the Open Data idea in the back of the head. By sharing, everyone gets more in the end.“

The SPD wants to intervene, also specifically where individual companies have already established a Market dominance gained. "Where this proved to be the case, to a company with a market-dominating position of your data in anonymized Form to the public and their competitors to provide", it says in the discussion paper. "So to proactively prevent the emergence of new Data monopolies or oligopolies, as well as competition and innovation will be strengthened." Particularly companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook or Google could be affected. It is still unclear how the data Sharing will work in practice. In the SPD paper, no Details are available.

In addition, should be created incentives for the data. The SPD calls for the "strengthening of the European data economy and to the development of a common European data space". In addition, the SPD wants to guarantee the data sovereignty of European companies. This also includes the targeted promotion of cloud providers within the EU, count for example.

It is also a matter of, "to establish a culture of data sharing," says Saskia esque. Another effect could be that in Germany there is such a law, finally, a broad data base for research in the area of Artificial intelligence. So far, the United States and China were clearly in the advantage. In America, privacy is handled comparatively lax. And in China, the authoritarian state ensures that enough information about the citizens and made available to be collected.

"We are in the bracket between these two countries. And track approaches, we do not want to.“ The SPD wool reconcile "the innovation of the 'Free Flow of Data' with the data protection".

According to the daily mirror will be on Thursday to the legislative initiative, a Meeting of the SPD party headquarters, at which 20 to 30 experts and stakeholders to discuss the paper. The draft of the discussion paper the SPD has already put on Tuesday online.

The Federal Ministry of economic Affairs Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU) did not want to comment on the proposal. The CDU member of Parliament Thomas Jarzombek, criticized the move by the social Democrats on Twitter: "The proposal of the SPD to a 'data-for-all-law' sounds good, but is not thought out", stated he is on the short message service. "If data are anonymised instead of being a pseudonym is used, it will be no Big Data analysis or AI-viewing."

The Co-Chairman of the SPD-affiliated digital Association D64, Henning Tillmann said: "The statement is technically-in terms of content, unfortunately, wrong. It is, however, entirely on what you want to be trained for a KI. A neural network, it is first of all whether there is a reference to the person or not.“ Tillmann is one of the experts charged Thursday in the discussion.
