-As this is a hot topic for discussion and also handled in the books, the student should be able to have good arguments to this topic. A good answer should ​atleast ​question the transparency of data mining, one's ability to appeal against the predictions made by data mining (lack of due process), and to bring forward the point that even when data mining is done by the computers there is a always a human aspect involved as well.+As this is a hot topic for discussion and also handled in the books, the student should be able to have good arguments to this topic.
