Project Big Data
Have you ever wondered how our information get transferred from places to places? Or if along that route, someone had looked at your privacy and you don’t know who that person is? Today, data is becoming more and more advance every second. And with data comes users, so they are all being dragged into this never-ending loop of information and technology and computers that they are becoming so addicted to it! Even basic privacy is being ignored and users are abusing our complicated system. Therefore, we should be extra cautious with our information being shared.
Where did the data come from, where will it go to? What’s in all this action being transferred? According to Ted Ed talks, if suddenly someone asked for your fingerprints or even your face, what will you do? Are you wondering who is processing your data and why they are doing this? Because once your data is out, it’s literally out for good. Anyone else who has access to your information or data can steal it and inappropriately use it without your permission. To me, even when I use my finger to unlock my iPhone 6s and my face to recognize someone else’s social media payment, I always recap my thinking from putting all my information in the submit form. Such as a survey, an envelope or voting. Even for just a private recording, there will occasionally be surveillance cameras stalking everything I say. But what it should do is track important evidence and signs where criminals take actions.
Because security cameras are basically everywhere and it’s the number 1 monitor of our safety, there are people who get wrongly accused for doing nothing even if they just simply returned to the crime scene. If that happens, jaywalkers can run away, and an unknown suspect can mysteriously get caught. Densely populated areas are places where there are many inhabitants, it would be close to impossible to track what everyone is doing. So how will they be able to find the exact right person that committed? Also, many online locations are being stalked or hacked, so this is a big problem if we invented these machines. Because if new cameras are installed, they interfere with many people’s personal business.
Earning salaries and making money is very crucial. In fact, it’s supposed to be part of our daily lives. But if everything is OK in moderation, then these moral senses all have a legal and an illegal to it. There are so many ways that stock markets, insurances and online sources get their money illegally. Companies can sell your data illegally without your permission just to make that one of a little profit. Also, once they do that, those who sold your data and privacy can regret like a pauper who recently just got bankrupt. To me, I really don’t prefer selling or giving up most of your data for others to sell it illegally or blackmail it just for profit, it’s back for both sides.
In summary, big data is a great way for us to communicate, just be sure to control the two edges. As I mentioned before, anything is okay in moderation. Just like big data, it may be interesting to just try crossing the “red line” by just a little bit. But literally, this isn’t worth the risk. In considerate there are so many critics and viewers out there who view “personal data” as an entertainment, but there are people who spread the positive and correct messages. Being a data user doesn’t mean you cannot post anything that is valuable. But using this special tool can really benefit us from our entire lives. And it’s no doubt that more and more privacies are being exposed.
