Project Report: Big Data

The opportunities and risks posed by the use of big data in smart health and smart mobility?

Big Data was conducted by iRights.Lab on behalf of the German Institute for Trust and Security on the Internet (DIVSI) and can be downloaded free of charge from our website.

What are the oppor­tu­ni­ties and risks of using big data in the fields of smart health and smart mobil­i­ty? The com­pre­hen­sive study Big Data, which iRights.Lab pre­sent­ed at the end of the sec­ond phase of the project “Does Ger­many need a dig­i­tal code?,” seeks to pro­vide some answers.

The study exam­ines the chal­lenges asso­ci­at­ed with the col­lec­tion of large amounts of data and the social lines of con­flict in this con­text. How these prob­lems can be tack­led and what solu­tions present them­selves is the sub­ject of a series of inter­views with experts from research, pol­i­tics and inter­na­tion­al organizations.
