FPF Co-Chair Jules Polonetsky Discuss Big Data on PBS NewsHour

Yesterday evening, FPF Co-Chair Jules Polonetsky was featured in a segment on PBS NewsHour discussing the benefits and privacy trade-offs of “Big Data.” Joined by Kashmir Hill and Viktor Mayer-Schoenberger, Polonetsky argued that understanding Big Data requires transparency: “The companies say, trust us, we just want to sell you stuff, you have nothing to worry about. The government says, trust us, we’re just trying to catch terrorists. But you know what? This is too important to just trust. And we might trust today’s government, and who knows what happens tomorrow?”
