The documentary The Human Face of Big Data ( has touched on crucial questions such as how fast we are generating data nowadays, how can such massive data be used to improve our lives, what might be the pitfalls with such data tracks recording our daily patterns, and what the future holds for us to utilize and safe-guard the ever-growing data powers?

Premise from IMDB - "With the rapid emergence of digital devices, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives in ways from the microscopic to the gargantuan: Big Data, a word that was barely used a few years ago but now governs the day for many of us from the moment we awaken to the extinguishing of the final late-evening light bulb. This massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time is allowing us to not only address some of humanity biggest challenges but is also helping create a new kind of planetary nervous system. Yet as Edward Snowden and the release of the Prism documents have shown, the accessibility of all these data comes at a steep price. The Human Face of Big Data captures the promise and peril of this extraordinary knowledge revolution."
