Book Talk: Viktor Mayer-Schönberger and Kenneth Neil Cukier on Big Data – and its Dark Side [AUDIO]

March 7th, 2013

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.
