With the Databox concept, scientists at British universities have begun an attempt to win back control of information about us. In a paper by computer scientists from Queen Mary University of London and Cambridge University, the Databox concept is described as a piece of software that collects personal data and then manages how that information is made available to third parties. In essence, it’s “a networked service that collates personal information from all of your devices and can also make that data available to organisations that the owner allows”.
