Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
In the world of data, size obviously matters. But how much will it matter in the end, in what ways will these effects be felt and by whom. Perhaps most importantly, what can be done to influence this? While considering the potential impacts of big data in a broad sense, this paper applies these questions specifically to developing countries. The report calls for a more open and transparent international data industry, with corporations and governments allowing citizens greater access and control of the information held about them. Further global and national policy recommendations include an international bill of data rights and investment in ICT skills and infrastructure in order to prevent developing countries from missing out on big data benefits.
