Sociologist of Technology Prof. Dr. Johannes Weyer interviewed
In a conversation with the Gemeinschaftswerk der Evangelischen Publizistik on August 3, 2016, Prof. Weyer spoke about the potential uses of Big Data. Especially against the background of the assassination of Würzburg he states that the radicalization of individual perpetrators can be identified early with the consequent use of Big Data.
However, in this context the question rises whether the control of human behavior is socially desirable. These questions are the reason why the phenomenon Big Data has to be investigated interdisciplinary, which the research project ABIDA pursues.
