There is no reason that companies should be sucking up data willy nilly, says Eric Horvitz from Microsoft Research

We attended the "Privacy in the Era of Big Data" session at the AAAS conference in San Jose, Calif., on Feb. 15 and came away with a new appreciation of how complex the subject truly is. Below is a series of tweets we posted during the meeting, as well as a brief abstract.


Privacy in an Era of Big Data: Directions, Advances, and Reflections

Sunday, 15 February 2015: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Room 210AB (San Jose Convention Center)
Science, technology, and businesses are being rapidly transformed by innovative ways to collect, organize, and analyze more information. Along with the growth of reliance on big data comes the realities and perceptions about big incursions into personal privacy. This session considers three perspectives on addressing concerns about the access and usage of personal data by organizations such as online services, biotech companies, or research institutes: first, research directions in the development of privacy-protecting technologies that make computing systems and data analysis more secure; second, methods that consider user preferences about the balance between privacy and personalized services, including methods that provide guarantees on minimizing data access; and third, legal and ethical implications of large-scale data collection and mining.
