Will Big Data Mean the End of Privacy?
Pence, Harry E.
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v44 n2 p253-267 Dec 2015
Big Data is currently a hot topic in the field of technology, and many campuses are considering the addition of this topic into their undergraduate courses. Big Data tools are not just playing an increasingly important role in many commercial enterprises; they are also combining with new digital devices to dramatically change privacy. This article will argue that it is absurd to teach about Big Data in our classes without discussing its effect on privacy in our society.
