What do you believe the public that is citizens think about the future of big data. Are these concerns warranted?
I think more and more people are aware and more afraid of big data. They think it is a theat against their liberty and even against equality. I think most of the population don't really care about where the data goes, they are not scare about it or they don't feel concern about data ownership.I think that the public does not have a good knowledge about what the big data is. They think that it's only what they publish on the social networks whereas it's everything we do on the internet of things.Most of the people don't realize who it will change our world during the future.I believe that the public thinks big data is something unclear. For the public that is interested in big data, I think that they are worried that machines, and so companies, can know everything about themselves, that we don't have any privacy anymore. I think that these concerns are warranted because it is the case now.I believe that the public believe that Big Data may be used in the future, if it isn't already the case, to spy and them, or to be more precise to deviate their habits and better control them through it. Those concerns, while they may go a little bit far, are perhaps warranted since Big Data is a tool used in Marketing to influence one's consumption.I believe that the public have a real mistrust toward big data. First of all because of a lack of information and then because of some kind of demonization on the public area and on media. Most of these concerns may be warranted, indeed because of the exponential growth of data and digital transformation, the law and the government are not able to follow the pace. Thus, before the decree of new law and new security policy, more and more big data case could occur.I believe the public thinks that Big Data have a lot of opportunities for the future: in the health, security, technology... But they also think that it will make disappear many jobs too (even if it will create other jobs). Moreover, the sharing data will perhaps increase, then any company will have access to personal information. And finally, there are even more anticipation movies and books, which present a kind of possible future, and they stay in the mind of the public who doesn't want this to happen.
Some of these concerns are exaggerated, but many are warranted like the opportunities for example.According to me, citizens think the main concerns about the future of big data will be privacy but according to me the majority of common citizens don't feel really concern yet about Big Data. Whose that are the most concern are all the profession linked to data and some business.I think people are getting more and more aware about big data. However I believe that most people feel frighten by it because (maybe) of a lack of knowledge about it. It seems that we only get to know the scary sides of big data and know little about the good things.
As we feel like we are spied constantly, people believe that in the future privacy will be completely destroyed.I believe that the public think that big data is dangerous but I don't think that so much people really realize it. People should be more aware of the dangers of Big Data through prevention for example, even at school or through advertisement!
I also think that people are more and more careful with the data they share on the Internet of Objects and on social media because of what they hear. I think they are right to do so because our information are going to be more and more available, for more and more people.I think people are mixed about the future of big data. In one hand, there are happy to have new technologies that improves their lives and their everyday life. But in an other hand, they are afraid by the fact that everything they done is followed by company...
People are sometime disturb by the fact that they receive ads linked with what they already saw etc. But this is not a big deal, I think the real fear is about their health data. For example, bank that doesn't want to give a credit to someone because the bank has data on the person which shows that he or she is in bad health.Big Data is the information everyone needs to improve services. I believe that the public think that in the future Big Data will be everywhere and will guide us. Their concerns are about improving the services but not how much privacy we have to left for them.To me, I think people are divided on this topic. Some people think that big data will have a true positive impact on our society by improving services and day-to-day life, but some others are more negative concerning the privacy with the argument of surveillance and life control.
I think all these concerns have to be keep in mind.I believe that the public is for a part afraid about the future of Big Data and for another part totally non affected by these issues, which that a part of the citizens has no idea about what could be done with their data or, worst, that these personal information are all the times gathered. In both case, these concerns born with ignorance or lack of understanding, so in that way, we can say that these concerns doesn't appear crazy cause governments are not educating the population enough about these subjects.A lot of people think "I do legal things i don't care if somebody is taking my personal information to use it through an economical way". Indeed people are now aware that they let a print by using the internet and the IOT. But a lot of people don't go furthest than it. And don't realize the potential impacts in our social, personal and professional life. There are still a lot of people who are not aware of the impacts and risks of Big Data on our own opportunities.Lots of citizens don't care about big data, some of them do not know what is this I think. When you don't think about consequences of the Internet, social network etc..., you don't ask the question of Big Data. But I think some citizens are scared and some think that is our future. For example, Chinese people love this system and know that their future will be guide by big data. But some citizens are afraid of this future and do not want to take part of. For me, we are too deeply involved in the system of big data and it would be difficult to go back.I believe that the public is not concerned by the future of big data. Indeed, they only are concerned by having access quickly to internet or their favorite websites. Government or GAFA which are the biggest holders of data, they must sensibilise their users. In Heaven all people should be warranted by big data and how holders used it.
But we live in a society that is not concerned by the future, but only by their future.I think that some citizens are getting worried about what the future of big data could be. Their privacy is more and more jeopardized.I believe that the public option is divided towards big data's subjects but surely, everyone agree that it is a hot topic issue.
On one hand, people are really aware of the subject and try to understand what are the implications of it and how we can use it in a good way. That's why a lot of jobs are created in this field, people are getting trained to perform analytical analysis.
On the other hand, others tend to believe that Big Data is like "Big Brother", they don't take too many attention to the digital transformation or they are very careful about it. These concerns can be warranted because of the last scandals.I believe that the public knows that big data technologies are becoming reality, that technologies is always going further and that objected are being more and more connected to each other. However, big data remains an abstract concept for most people, it is not something that can be easily or unambiguously represented in people's mind.
The public doesn't know what their data are being collected for and how they are been used because there is no transparency from companies using these data.I believe that lots of people do not really care about big data. Even if there are more and more news about it and that it is a growing concern, most people are not really aware of all the implications, they even do not really understand what is happening. Maybe there is a kind of ignorance about Big Data, mostly because it is a subject that is not often thought at school.I think we are not all aware of the implication of it. To know what the public really think knowingly I think we have to confront them to their persona cards and show them/us what organization know about us.
I think that the public is divided because there are people which only see the good side of giving information like giving email address for a discount in a shop and other people afraid of a "1984" society. I don't really thing there is a main trend in the thinking.Most people are spectators of it. They only take advantages platforms can provide them into account. Furthermore, most of them are satisfied with all IoT provide them with. When I tell people about Big Data, the largest part doesn't even know what it is. The cyberspace and how the internet works is not already trained at school and there exists a real gap between those who understand the consequences and stakes, and the rest.
I am both afraid and fascinated by Big Data and I try to keep being aware of this ubiquity in my behavior on the internet but it is impossible not to leave a trace on the web today. So I, but we have to deal with.I believe that the public think that big data is either a danger or key point for our future. Through the several books about this topic we can see the opposition between the scared people and the optimist one. One the one hand, it's really an hot burning issue because people do not appreciate the idea of being regulated by data. I mean they do not support the idea of loosing the control of there own data. Among these people there are also those who do not really understand and measure the importance of the topic. On the other hand, the optimists one see it as a progress and something which can improve our lives as the writer Hervé Cuillandre mentionned in his book : a better world, and if IA humanised our future ?
Of course, I will say these concerns warranted infinity is scary and as far as I'm concerned I study this topic to measure the issue.I believe that the public think that big data will be very important in their future with the use of their private data like Facebook, Snapchat.. They are responsible and they want to know where their data go, which company or government can collect and use their data, why their data are collected?
These concerns are not warranted right now but thanks to raise awareness, legislation can be changed.I believe can it's impossible to determine what the public think. The Public from where ? People with which political opinion ? Rich or Poor People ? Indeed, there are some many differences between culture and what people of this or that country think. In my opinion, we can not determine a major opinion from the public. But it's possible to determine two types of public People who are enthusiastic about Big Data and these implications (Progresses in science, New Economy based on Big Data Technologies, increase of growth, safety, ...
People who are feared by Big Data because of spying, lack of liberty, lack of privacy...i think the population does not known yet how the data is powerful! they can not manage to imagine how we can go further with the data. (look at watson ibm and the robot called sophia. it's very impressing.)The public is actually both thrilled and worried about big data because it can be useful and improves their everyday lives but it can also threaten their lives. Most of the time, they worry about it because they are not enough informed about what is going on and they cannot even imagine what their future lives will look like. It is a bit scary to discover how one the GAFAs is using our data by reading a newspaper.I think a large part of the population isn't really conscious/educated on what is and how Big Data is important, both socially and ethically. I think the population will be more and more overwhelmed by the progress in technology and thus be less vigilant, which will potentially pose a major problem in the coming decades.
With GDPR and the Facebook scandal recently, some of the concerns were made widely public, which I think encouraged society to act against it.The public think the future of big data as represented in an artificial intelligence that will help them in every decisions of their lives. It will become their second half, their "better half" maybe as they will provide the most rational questions that maybe humans won't choose because of their condition, that is to say having feelings and emotions.
For most people, it's seems scary ! and these concerns are warranted because all of what I described before will be due to : collecting private data, analysing every people's lives. There is a huge challenge on how privacy will be maintained. And for the moment people don't feel they will be protected from all of it.In my opinion, the public is worrying about Big Data privacy issues which are totally warranted due to multiple scandals of data leaks and hacks.People always have a negative or pessimistic opinion about Big Data, thinking that Big Data is a business that feeds on illegal procedures to improve itself. In fact they are right, and it only depends on our ethics to prevent Big Data from having a bad image.A large majority doesn't know what Big Data is. For some others it's a magic word which will solve any problem on earth like his fellow colleague the AI.
But some aware citizens think Big Data will be the end of Privacy Life and the birth of "Big Brother is watching you". These concerns are fully warranted. You just have to open the internet or to read any newspaper you'll find another problem caused by the misused of Big Data. Big Data isn't the evil itself. It's how the big companies used it that corrupts Big Data.I think the public don't realize the extent of big data : either the beneficial aspects it could provide or the hazardous one it could cause. I think Big data and technology in general will evolve deeper that what we are use to thinking (maybe some day computers will take the control of humans).
These concerns are basically funded on the fact that in every network, technology... you subscribe there are terms of conditions but no one read them because it is too long. So as a matter of facts, you can be concern of what is hidden to you or explicit when you use Big data technology, but there is always a solution, and you are not forced to accept the terms on conditions.I think it's only been a few years the public started to be aware of the world of big data and its implications. Globally I think distrust is growing and people tend to be more aware about privacy issues but they face lack of tools, information and solutions (difference between resources and what they want : can we really have a "normal life" and have full privacy of his own data ?).
I do think these concerns are warranted, the matter of data is still a grey area in law research.The public opinion is divided regarding big data. On one side it can be considered as a technological offset which can enable us to manage better our problematics regarding environment (manning better supplies or knowing better our needs in order to adapt better the demand). On the other side there is a fear about the use of the data for political reasons (China uses big data to control its citizen and keep power) or business (Being a guinea pig analysed through data in order to be better known than yourself and reduced to consumer slavery).
In some way the both sentiment (positive and negative) can be true but the future of big data will be decided by the regulation we want to apply.
Problem is that the data is collecting at the international scale and there are different areas we do not agree on the regulation of it.I think that people are not careful enough about big data. They imagine the danger as shown in movies, it's too abstract for them. They need to realize that they should be interested in this matter now before it's too late.It Is necessary to protect the data, it's an important issue for the future I believe that the pubic think of big data that in the future life will be simpler because all our connected objects will know what we want, so we will not search during 20 minutes in amazon an article : the algorithm and our past data will generate exactly what we want. These concerns are warranted because of the predictive analytics which allows algorithms to predict what we are gonna do, using all the data we gave during our entire life : but it raise the issue of privacy.I believe that most of people didn't see all the stakes of big data, they thinks that they are not concerned and their data are not interesting. For them big data is just a good way to improve their satisfaction on internet and in their life where they are more and more technological assisted.I think they know that it could be a huge change in their lives and they could be impressed and a little bit afraid because they don't have a lot of information and are just seeing the world evoluate quickly around us.I believe that it firstly depends on the geographic area. Indeed, European citizens seem to be scared and take big data carefully with precautions because no one can predict how dangerous it can be. Chinese people think that it is a way of trust and protection to their government. American ones already use it and try to expand the use more and more.
All that concerns of citizens are warranted because big data shows us everyday that it is impossible to control it : companies and GDPR laws or machine learning, IA and blockchain. We don't know what will happen and if big data seems to give us more freedom on the one hand, it surely take us others in the other hand.I have the impression that a lot of people don't know what big data is or what are the stakes of this concept, but still they feel very concerned once you speak the words "online privacy", "personal information leak", etc. Most of people prefer that their privacy is protected but don't really know what the companies that run our lives (GAFA eg) are really doing with all this data. These concerns are really warranted and we must all inform ourselves and participate to the collective debate. However, we often feel helpless before the giants companies.I think, lot of people are fear about Big Data because they know that they left a lot of personal information on Internet. These concerns are warranted, but I think a lot of citizens trust in big data to solve current and future issues.The public is actually both thrilled and worried about big data because it can be useful and improves their everyday lives but it can also threaten their lives. Most of the time, they worry about it because they are not enough informed about what is going on and they cannot even imagine what their future lives will look like. It is a bit scary to discover how one the GAFAs is using our data by reading a newspaper.Big data is not very clear for the public, so they are a lot of uncertainty for the future of big data.It depends of which part of the globe we refer to. In the western world, the public has strong beliefs in democracy, then this public may be more scared about the future of Big Data. Indeed, with the collection of our private information and the possibility to use theme at commercial aims or defense aim (fight against terrorism), people can be afraid of being spied on. Whereas in countries such as China, the public has not the same approach of democracy and privacy, governments can use data of their citizens more easily. In China for example, with the Big Data the government can ban any political opinion very easily, this is what can be frightening for us Europeans.
These concerns can be prevented with strong regulations.Big data is about innovation, but it is also a fear, protection, privacy are very important for citizens. Big data can be assimilated to ignorance, most people do not know what companies does with their data.Citizens should be aware they can highly benefit from Big data, for instance it can improve our healthcare (by predicting illnesses, by monitoring your lifestyle...) or help tackle crime (via real-time facial recognition, noise monitoring, CCTV and license plate scanning as London has successfully done). But it obviously has a dark side : it raises issues of personal privacy, ownership of data and civil liberties.I don't think the public is really aware about the implications of big data. At first, people have expressed positive attitude toward it but the increasing infringement led to concern about the protection of their data. yes, multiples times, it has been revealed that some data are illegally sold or acquired by some third parties. as it has been for the case of Cambridge Analytica or I think people are asleep about the implication of Big Data, most don't even know what it is, some are afraid of it as they are of any innovation and would be able to talk about it.
I think most of the current concerns of the general public are coming from a lack of education and from fear-mongering people more than from a well informed point of view. That said, some concerns are absolutely justified and fit well into the dystopian future imagined by Huxley and Orwell.
Elaborate on your choice of big data dimension. Why is this the most important?
Velocity is the main dimension for me : what defines the most big data is the analysis evolution of our devices : that means nothing to gather data if we are notable to analyse them quick enough.in y opinion big data can have some benefit if they are use with the approval of their owner.Because, once the data are not ours, we accept to lose some freedom: we can't do anything without giving a full access about our preferences, political ideas, level of wealth ... to private or public sector companies. That is somewhat harmless today (if we consider the non stop targeted advertisements to be harmless ...) but it could be used against us in the future (if France decides to use to take these data in consideration for the politics like China, if some hackers decided to hack our data to frame us ...).Social Data, I think that public perceptions and public understanding are the most important aspects because I think that we should know what the population think about it to be able to make choices that represent their thoughts for new laws about big data. Moreover, I think that a lot of people are unaware of the amount of data collected about them and this is a problem.Data ownership is an essential dimension since without clear property, order and legislation can't be put in place, or at least can't be enforced.Before any further legislation and rules, the most important to me is the good understanding of the phenomenon. People must be aware of the significance of the data on our era. They must understand their role as a crucial actor.First, I think there are some issues we won't be able to avoid: data ownership, where we access data, public perceptions and public understanding.
The legislative framework is important, but it's too slow; and I don't believe that soft law will manage to exist before a long time because it would need too much supranational deals.
I'm afraid that data ethics and professional and organisational culture makes the data quality curves.
I think data quality is the most important among these aspects because it's the main goal of Big Data: we want more precision in order to develop its opportunities (health, security or technology...).Even if the ethic question around big data is very important, I think the more important I Data quality because with this intensive growth in data, we have to focus on quality in order to have good insight for the data and that is really the main point. We not have to consider all the data that exist. Public perceptions and understanding is really important for the future of big data. As we grow towards a society where big data will be more and more around us I think it's important that people understand more about it, its nature, its goals and purposes. We are bound to live with big data so people must understand it and not be frightened by it.According to me, data ownership is the most important aspect in terms of the future of big data, because it impacts all the other variables of the question: where we can access data, how to understand it, its legislative framework… It's important for everyone to know if they are the owner of their data when they use or produce it ! Our behavior would be significantly different if we knew our data is or isn't ours.I think the ownership is the most important issue, because if we don't know who own the data, we can't be able to give rules and legislation. I think the issue is to have more transparency to know who own what and why.Data ownership is as far as I am concerned the most important dimension of data now. It will allows to think about the legislative framework but first we need to decide who is the owner of a data. The issue with property of data is that we are dealing with IoT and frontier are not enough efficient with this space. For example a British Citizen traveling to America have to show his passport with Fingerprints on it to America administration which will verify his identity but taking his DNA to American DataBase DNA. So the Citizen's property is no longer his property but American property. Americans respond to that " Don't come" but it's not enough with Big Data.I choose data ownership because for me data is not really a problem but data ownership implicates that someone, a company or anything could keep your data and perfectly know what you are doing, where you are moving and that could be a problem for privacy rights.In my opinion, everything starts with understanding. So, making people change their mind and improve their understanding of Big Data will make them able to interact, use it in the right way and also ask for more safety and protection being totally aware about the risks.
I think that all the other aspects are important but will be solved (as the legislative framework) with education and requests from the public.Data ethics and professional and organisational culture is the most important things for me because we can not avoid Big data for the future. We can not control currently who can have access and where and when. Big Data is money and profit sources for a lot of companies now. a new market is born. But we can step by step integrate ethics and law to limit the negative impacts of Big data in our daily life to protect human rights.Something is hidden from people. I think it's a big challenge to explain data to people, the causes, the consequences of their actions on the web and what you have to hide because each information on the web is collected and that, lots of people don't know it.The legislative Framework is the key. Indeed, when it will have an established legal framework, and not this smog that benefits to the GAFA. Data Ethics refers to right and wrong conduct in relation to data, in particular personal data. It takes into account issues of intellectual property. I think that the evolution of big data in the future will become are real threat for everyone's privacy. This is why the ethical dimension seems the most important.Data ownership is to me the most important because it protects the customer.I believe that taking somebody's data is a form of trespassing on somebody's privacy and freedom. But how can we reverse the trend? How can we take control of what track we are leaving on the Internet ?
I think that people's empowerment will be an outcome on raising people's awareness of what is recorded from them when they browse the internet.
If people have a better understanding of what is happening, they can chose what to share and what to keep private.I think that the legislative framework is the most important because it is what will set all the rules concerning the use of data, the collection and so on. Without a legal framework, everyone can do what he wants and it is an open door to the violation of data privacy for example. When there will be a really legal framework, I think that the rest will follow.I think all the other options depend on the ownership of big data: if it becomes entirely private (for instance to Amazon) the access will be restricted, the understanding very small, the legislative framework will be Amazon's policy with Amazon's ethic. There is no doubt that we can't go back and get rid of digital devices. So the more ethical way to deal with Big Data is to understand what it implies and to be clear with people. The dimension of being totally transparent in the way data are used is the cornerstone to avoid a two-speed society.Data ownership is the most important thing to me because we are aware that data are collected everywhere and always so the one who will own it will be very powerful. I think at the safety, defence field for example but generally speaking data is the new oil and so the most important thing to manage and own.
We can understand the idea of data ownership as are my data my property or not ..I think the legislative framework is the most important big data dimension because thanks to a strong legislation, people will know which company collects their data, there this data will go, and thanks to this they will have a better understanding of big data.In my opinion, the most important aspect is to control our own data and have the choice to be online or or. Some people want not to share data with the world but some people accept harmful aspects of gathering and using data to have access to addition services like Social Networks, Online App.. The most important is to give the right to hide or show our lives.In my opinion the most important thing is the use of this data. what will we do with all this data? is it possible to take only the positive impacts ? the data shall we advice human or AI?We can create as many laws as we want, if a company (especially the biggest ones) decides not to follow the rules, it will do it, even if they have to pay a huge fine (such as Google which has paid several billions fines). If we manage to educate everyone about data ethics, how to use data in a company etc., it will be way more useful. Unfortunately, it might sounds like an utopia but we have to keep going on teaching how it works to the young generation.I think the public understanding is the most important. The people and coming generations have to be educated early because if we continue like that there will be a major gap between the people who understand the value of data (and what is data basically) and those who don't.It's very important to have ethics in big data and have a common perception of how to use data. Indeed, people trust more in more in algorithms so if they put their trust in machines and in the data collected that means that the people behind the data, those who analysed it, created the machine to collect the data and interpreting it must be trustworthy. That's why ethics are so much important. It's needed as it creates a framework in which companies and industries are allowed to work and are not cheating on people.In my opinion, if there is a good understanding of Big Data issues by the public, they will be able to protect themselves from possible unethical use of their data. A key point is that all personal data can be possibly recorded and stored. However, we have to keep in mind that Big Data can be useful for society, we shouldn't be afraid of it, just cautious.The image that Big Data conveys, and therefore its applications and the opportunities of development depend on ethics, and the way we implement it through professional and public organisations. In fact developing Big Data without limiting its repercussions, and infringing in one's freedom and privacy leads to Big Data being under strict regulations.Public perceptions and public understanding are the most important aspect for two reasons.
First citizens have to understand what's at stake, what the company really do with data, what the company earn thanks to the data, what is legal and illegal. They must have a global picture in order to understand how it works.
As soon as they can picture that, perhaps, they will fight to protect their privacy and to prevent the company like the GAFA to behave like gods. Perhaps if people have the knowledge, they will fight for their data, fight for a world where Big Data is out there to help the society, not to be another profit tool for the company.I think that the most important is Data quality. Indeed nowadays with the globalization of news, the flow of information has become too much large and intense. Nobody can be sure of the quality of their information. For example, when we know that there are 159 administrators on Wikipedia (but even more because each administrator can be just a name that a thousand persons can use), you can't be sure of the information you read.
So for me, you have to be careful about the quality of information that involve the source, the trust and content of the information.Companies that handle data are more likely to always have a head start (// government) in both technical matters and law bypass / optimization) matters regarding Big Data. It would be more efficient to change ways of thinking of the top management of such organization.It is our education regarding the understanding of the consequence of the use of big data which has to be developed in order to advocate for a regulation that fit with our vision of ethics.Public perceptions and public understanding are the key for the future. If the public don't understand or care for big data, it won't be any good or legitimate laws. And if people are aware, it will lead to a good and benevolent culture around big data. We can't expect anything good if the population is not educated to big data. Then I would choose quality of data in second.It's the most important aspect for me because without ethics and professional and organizational culture, we are not protected.If the public understand why data is collected and perceive it not as a "Big Brother" but as a life improvement system, Big Data could be useful in our daily life, this is my answer only if in the future all issues of privacy are solved of course. Data ownership is the most important because, if you own your own data you can do whatever you want with it. Then a legislative and ethic system can regulate it because at the beginning of everything there is property.Because Data have a lot of value and people, company and government will fight each others in the future to know who owns the data.Where we access data because when we know where they are, we can ask to delete them if we want and can control them in one way.Because this is essential to keep a sound and human society.Because Big Data is a very powerful tool, who can be use in a bad way or a good way. We have to put a huge ethic dimension in this tool in a private or a public dimension.We can create as many laws as we want, if a company (especially the biggest ones) decides not to follow the rules, it will do it, even if they have to pay a huge fine (such as Google which has paid several billions fines). If we manage to educate everyone about data ethics, how to use data in a company etc., it will be way more useful. Unfortunately, it might sounds like an utopia but we have to keep going on teaching how it works to the young generation.Data ethics, and professional and organisational culture is the most important in my opinion because all the people need to be aware of big data and its impact (especially in professional environment). The way of use of big data need to be more transparent and more respectful of private life.I think that the legislative framework is the most important big data dimension because it will predict the future use of big data. How companies and governments would be allowed to use our information.People are very concerned by their privacy in this way, the data ownership si very important because it will extend this privacy to the Internet.Everyone contributes to adding data to big data so it is hard to tell who's entitled to leverage big data. If there is a better perception and a better understanding by the public, the rules of the big data might be more strict and the public might use everything with more precaution.variety. because it allow you to have a complete view of what you're studying. Representative of the people are commonly from older generations and aren't well informed about technology, including big data. With time, public awareness will allow for the representatives to show some concern around the matter.
Moreover, when legislation is passed, it can be a problem when it is not understood by the public.
