The Ethics of Big Data

“As with every other technology, new or old, Big Data is neither good nor bad nor neutral. Design, implementation and use determines whether Big Data is ethical or not, though its limitations in revealing more about our society should be borne in mind when using the data to make sweeping statements about the state of the world.”
