source: New York University     2016年5月31日
The 4th Annual Weissberg Forum for Discourse in the Public Square focused on “Big Data”. In today's world, our reliance on technology has created a Big Data revolution that has transformed how we live, work, and think. Many questions arise, however, when it comes to the ethical issues related to privacy, confidentiality and identity, especially when personal data is so easily and readily collected, creating the ability to generate enormous amounts of power and wealth. The Weissberg Forum explored this conflict between utility and privacy from a variety of perspectives, including law, commerce, health, and national security. Charles Seife presented a keynote address entitled, "Information Battles: The Double-Edged Sword of Big Data"
