Our latest podcast examines the ever-growing field of big data. We asked experts in the field how the collection, storage and distribution of personal data intersects with citizens’ right to privacy. We spoke to Jennifer Copic and Dr. Eirann Leverett from the Centre for Risk Studies Team at the Cambridge University Judge Business School; Will Shackleton, a Cambridge alumnus who now works on the security team at Facebook; Dr. Jerry Fishenden, one of the UK’s leading experts in the world of technology and Edward Lucas, editor at The Economist. We also asked members of the public (who inadvertently generate data every day) their views about big data.
