Human Face of Big Data

Human Face of Big Data airs on WSKG TV February 24, 2016 at 10pm.  

With the rapid emergence of digital devices, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives in incredible ways. Every two days the human race is now generating as much data as was generated from the dawn of humanity through the year 2003. The massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time is allowing us to address some of humanity’s biggest challenges—pollution, world hunger, and illness—but as Edward Snowden and the release of National Security Administration documents have shown, the accessibility of all this data comes at a steep price. The Human Face of Big Data captures the promise and peril of this extraordinary knowledge revolution.
