Title: OBSCURING DATA WHEN GATHERING BEHAVIORAL DATA
Abstract:
A method for collecting data comprising: at a user device comprising a sensor, the user device being capable of detecting by means of the sensor interaction by a user with any of a plurality of predefined user interface elements: generating a raw dataset from sensor data collected by the sensor as a result of a user input, the user interface elements with which the user has interacted being derivable from the raw dataset and the raw dataset including finer-level sensor data indicating the manner of the user's interaction with those elements; forming an obscured dataset by processing the raw dataset to obscure which user interface elements the user has interacted with and retain at least some of the finer-level sensor data; and transmitting the obscured dataset to a remote computing device and/or storing the obscured dataset at the user device.
