Big data and society

The generation, linking and evaluation of large amounts of data (often referred to as "big data") is rapidly gaining importance in almost all areas of life. Questions of considerable social relevance are connected with this development. The discussions about a new balance between the exhaustion of innovation potential on the one hand and the realization of individual and social values ​​on the other hand have only just begun. The volume approaches the societal challenges associated with big data from a multidisciplinary perspective.
