Every day, we create 2.5 billion gigabytes of data. From an online purchase to a simple Facebook Like, our lives are online in one way or another.
But do we know what this data says about us? Employers pore through our Facebook profiles before even glancing at our resumes. Our private health data is taken into account when we are considered for a loan. In some U.S. cities police arrest people using algorithms that predict their possible implication in a crime using basic data such as age, race, gender and social background.
