Tell Us What You Think About Big Data and Privacy

In January, President Obama spoke about changes in the technology we use for national security purposes, and what they mean for our privacy broadly.

 

He launched a 90-day review of big data and privacy: how they affect the way we live, and the way we work — and how data is being used by universities, the private sector, and the government.

 

As part of that review, we’ve already heard from leading privacy advocates and industry leaders, among others.

 

But this is a conversation that affects all Americans, and we want to make sure you have a chance to be a part of it. We want your input.

 

Take a moment to tell us what you think about big data, privacy, and what it means to you.

 

The American people are interacting with technology more than ever — when using a cell phone, shopping online, visiting a doctor who uses electronic records, and in countless other everyday acts. These applications of technology and data are enhancing our lives in countless ways — helping us share experiences with distant loved ones, providing us with information at the click of a button, or aiding a job search.

 

As these technologies become more sophisticated, the ways that we think about and protect individual privacy also evolve.

 

Watch a message from John Podesta, Counselor to the President:

 

A special message from Counselor John Podesta

 

The American people are interacting with technology more than ever — when using a cell phone, shopping online, visiting a doctor who uses electronic records, and in countless other routine acts. As the technologies that enhance our daily lives become more sophisticated, the ways that we think about and protect individual privacy also evolve. Watch a special message from John Podesta, Counselor to the President, about the administration’s review of big data and privacy — and how you can weigh in.

 

 

 

We want to hear your opinion.

 

On January 17, President Obama spoke at the Justice Department about changes in the technology that we use for national security purposes, and what these technologies mean for our privacy broadly. He called on the administration to conduct a 90-day review of big data and privacy: how these areas affect the way we live, and the way we work — and how data is being used by universities, the private sector, and the government.

 

This is a complicated issue that affects every American — and we want to hear your feedback.Learn more about this review, and if you like, share your thoughts.

 

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy already released a formal Request for Information seeking comments from the public. But we want to make it even easier for you to participate in this important process.

 

Go to WhiteHouse.gov/Big-Data to share your views on big data and privacy. Who do you trust with your data? What data-collection technologies give you pause? How are data and new technologies transforming your day-to-day life?

 

Your responses will inform our final report, which we will deliver to the President next month.

  1. I have already made my thoughts known on the issue of Big Data, this is something near and ‘dear’ to me, something I am becoming more engaged in work wise in the private sector. Something that scares the hades out of me. There is a reason Germany became so angry at our ‘spying’, it is legitimate.

    Love the photos of China! Love this family.

    • Some history: Spying has been abound since the birth of any/all nations. Germany and Merkle are full of feces because they spy. Every nation spies. Snowden was/is a traitor because he stole 4 laptops full of NSA intell and gave it to Russia, that action is indirectly responsible for this crisis in the Ukraine. The NSA was created to spy, as was the FBI & CIA. These organizations were not created to bake cookies or sew quilts, they were created to spy. Spying saves American lives as well as international lives. Remember, freedom is not free, you pay for freedom with restricted living. IF Americans are not breaking the law in ways that can cost lives, then no American should worry about being spied on…..every business does this spying that has an online connection to us.

      • I do not in principle disagree with you, however there are and should be limits. There are and should be lines in the proverbial sand, especially when it comes to private citizens and their government.

        As to Snowden, yes.

        As to Germany, again yes but no as well.

      • Having close personal ties to all that type of espionage, I know how the game is played and why it’s played, all the nations spy. Every last one. The ones screaming the loudest at America, are the ones who spy the most. I also know quite a few Americans, and they all need spying on. ;-)

      • Okay, laughing at that one.

      • If I can make you laugh…I am successful.

  2. Love the images from China; Sasha and Malia are turning into ladies right before our eyes.

    The cartoons are great. :D

    • Hello Jack, good to see you are around on a Friday night. How is the family? The girls are growing up so fast and you are right, they are becoming such ladies.

      • The family is good. I think. My husband is asleep already and one daughter is in Arkansas with her fiance and the other is still in Illinois. I’m going to touch base again this weekend and make sure they are covered. That is if I can find her. She is getting ready for another art show and she teaches every day almost. I am not a worrier but I am concerned that she works so much in art that she may feel it is not fun any longer. I gave her a quote once by Toni Morrison: “Art is work, it just looks like play.” She comes to life up to her elbows in paint, charcoal or ink but at the end of the day I’ve seen her drained. Here I go talking too much. ;) I need to hit the hay too. ~Night!

      • Sleep well, dream sweetly and I’ll see you tomorrow. You’re not a worrier but you are a mom.
