Microsoft is working on a project codenamed “Bali,” which is designed to give users control of data collected about them.
Microsoft describes it as a “new personal data bank which puts users in control of all data collected about them…. The bank will enable users to store all data (raw and inferred) generated by them. It will allow the user to visualize, manage, control, share and monetize the data.”
The Bali About page says that the Bali project is in “initial stage,” meaning the developers are focused on helping users aggregate personal data from various websites and have an ability to view the data.”
