When Dolly the sheep became the first mammal to be successfully cloned, it sparked a huge discussion. While many marveled at the incredible breakthrough, the scientific feat raised a very important question: just because we can, does it mean we should?
Perhaps one could say the same for the use of big data.
Advances in big data technology are certainly marvelous, but have reached the point of privacy invasion. Overt surveillance from CCTV, body cameras and drones, along with advances in facial recognition pry into our lives to an unacceptable point.
