Earlier this month, the White House published a report examining big data's impact on the economy, government and society in general. The report is the result of an initiative launched by President Obama in January, when he asked presidential counselor, John Podesta to lead a committee reviewing big data and privacy.
Among the report's findings:
Podesta's team included the Secretaries of Energy and Commerce, special advisors to the President on science and the economy, and other senior officials. For 90 days the group met with academic researchers, privacy advocates, regulators, technology industry leaders, and even advertisers and civil rights groups.
You can learn more about the report in a insideBigData story, or the full report, which is available on the White House website.
