Podcast on Big Data

For all of you that heard about Big Data but never had the opportunity to look it up: Here is a 1h Breitband (Deutschlandradio Kultur) podcast about its issues and opportunities. The podcast might be of special interest for the participants of our three seminar groups on Ethik in der Informationsgesellschaft next semester.

Some of the podcast's ethical topics have already been discussed in several blogposts. Among them are:

Malaria in Kenia on Netzpolitik.org
Interactive visualization of location data from Vorratsdatenspeicherung on zeit.de

The podcasters come to the agreement that Big Data offers both, major possibilities and new ethical questions to our society. We will discuss its topics in depths in our seminar groups to draw our own conclusions!
