We have to start to build up more trust

Big Data is access to infor­ma­tion. Access to infor­ma­tion means „to pre­pare for the future, to get greater clar­i­ty and accu­ra­cy, to get bet­ter answers, solu­tions, prod­ucts, ser­vices, to be more effi­cient and suc­cess­ful, to cre­ate new per­spec­tives, to come up with dif­fer­ent choic­es and options — to get clos­er to the truth”.

To get infor­ma­tion about peo­ple and to pro­vide peo­ple with rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion one needs as much data as pos­si­ble. Gay­a­tri Patel says that „peo­ple should share much more”. There­fore ‘trust” is essen­tial. She rec­om­mends „to build up more trust between those who are giv­ing and tak­ing data”. Only by trust­ing each oth­er and shar­ing with each oth­er will Big Data con­tin­ue to be a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for the com­mu­ni­ty. (see: Mindmap: Gay­a­tri Patel)


  • „We get bet­ter solu­tions and bet­ter products.”
  • „To man­age time is to set a pace and to prioritize.”
  • „Big Data enables a more strate­gic decision-making.”
  • „The exchange of data needs to be more open.”
  • „We have to have some glob­al framework.”
  • „What is your pri­vate iden­ti­ty? Is it what you see, or what the oth­ers see?”
  • „‘Pri­vate” is a def­i­n­i­tion of soci­ety; it is a dynam­ic definition.”
