Big data in government: A force for good or evil? - Techtopia.

Day in and day out, we create masses of data. Analyzing those data footprints can help governments make our lives safer and our cities greener. But it can also give rise to surveillance on an unprecedented scale — and a world in which everyone is a suspect, civil liberties advocates warn. They have good reasons to be worried, as the story of S.Q. Masood from Hyderabad in India illustrates.

In this episode of Techtopia, DW’s Chief Technology Correspondent Janosch Delcker investigates how governments can use big data for good — and at what point data-based governance becomes intrusive and needs to be stopped.
