  Podcast PolitikWissen

Technological changes allow us to collect huge amounts of data from many different sources. Never before have we seen such a detailed and extensive collection of data about people's behavior as now, in the age of the Internet. Big data advocates see the potential to raise new questions that we were unable to answer before large-scale datasets became available. However, big data is "no free lunch" and researchers face ethical questions around data protection and intellectual property rights.
