<p>Like any new technological development in the past, Big Data starts out as an inherently value-neutral concept. Nuclear power comes to mind, mechanical printing, BitTorrent or even the Internet itself. But in the same way that BitTorrent leaves the decision to download widely available illegal content to its users, Big Data puts computer scientists in a position of social responsibility that most of us don't seem to realize. Constant surveillance by myriads of sensors and data collectors can just as easily restrict human freedom as it can enable it. But unlike programming models or tools for enabling large-scale data processing, I'm not aware of any kind of reusable concepts which informatics could offer to avoid such harmful usage. The moral judgement remains—as it has always been—in the hands of the individual developer.</p>
