Big Data is all around us – facebook users, records on citizens, the network of neurons in the brain, routes of migrants, impact of publications. The Data itself is neither good or evil, however, it can be used for either purposes. The availability and analysis of big data opens up enormous opportunities for research, but is not without serious dangers. The course explores the amazing potential and the dark side of Big Data.
