Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Los Angeles Sage 2014Description: xvii, 222 p.ISBN: 9781446287484.Subject(s): Databases | Big dataDDC classification: 005.74015 Summary: Traditionally, data has been a scarce commodity which, given its value, has been either jealously guarded or expensively traded. In recent years, technological developments and political lobbying have turned this position on its head. Data now flow as a deep and wide torrent, are low in cost and supported by robust infrastructures, and are increasingly open and accessible. A data revolution is underway, one that is already reshaping how knowledge is produced, business conducted, and governance enacted, as well as raising many questions concerning surveillance, privacy, security, profiling, social sorting, and intellectual property rights.
