Big Data and its Dark Side

Op 6 maart 2013 hielden Viktor Mayer-Schoenberger en Neil Cukier een voordracht over Big Data en vooral over de ‘donkere kant’ van deze Big Data op een door het Berkman Center van de Harvard University georganiseerd seminar hierover. De voordracht werd als volgt aangekondigd: ‘The power of big data—analyzing huge swaths of information to uncover insights and make predictions that were largely impossible in the past—is poised to transform business and society. Yet there is a dark side. Privacy is eroded like never before. And a new harm emerges: predictions about human behavior that may result in penalties prior to actual the infraction being committed. In this talk Viktor Mayer-Schönberger—Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at Oxford—and Kenneth Neil Cukier—Data Editor of The Economist—take a look at big data’s power, the dangers it poses and how to address them’. Nog in ‘the mood’ van de KVAN Dagen 2014 in Assen over ‘Big Archives’ is deze voordracht wel heel interessant voor iedere informatieprofessional.
