Big data: Someone’s watching us
While the ‘big data’ technologies that come into our lives with the digital age have made positive advances, especially in the field of health, experts warn that these data may lead to future ‘surveillance’ mechanisms.
The ‘big data’ technologies that come into our lives together with the digital era have positive developments especially in the field of health, but according to experts, there is a ‘dark’ side of the subject. Experts who speak to the Anadolu Agency warn that the data in the digital environment can lead to future ‘surveillance’ mechanisms and that sanctions may be insufficient.
While the number of users of platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube is increasing day by day, the amount of data on these websites is increasing simultaneously. According to the US-based International Data Agency’s ‘Digital Universe’ research, the amount of data that is 130 exabytes in 2005 is expected to increase to 40 thousand exabytes in 2020. 90 percent of the amount of data in the world is expressed in the last two years.
