Abstract

In light of Big Data processing, which is becoming more automated and reliant on data-driven decision-making (eg via the use of AI), and the trend of outsourcing any (especially complex) data processing task, the distinction between the roles and responsibilities of data controllers and processors has become less clear.

This provocation paper provides a brief discussion of this issue for areas such as smart city policy making.

Keywords: GPDR; AI; Data Controllers; Data Processors; Governance
