Abstract: This thesis addresses the issue of managing privacy in smart environments, while emphasizing problems and solutions in context of interpersonal privacy. It elaborates different concepts of privacy and how smart environments interfere with these concepts. In this context this work develops solutions to understand patterns of interpersonal privacy management, to orchestrate different disclosure control methods to a composite disclosure control system, and to automate disclosure decisions using machine learning techniques.
