  Every time we search the Web, use our phone, read an email—or even turn on a light—we create data that businesses collect and use for decisions. There are already as many connected devices as there are people on earth, yet most consumers don’t know how their data is used or what inferences can be drawn. As the exponential increase of data continues, it will likely continue to drive innovation and economic growth. But even as new data-driven experiences make life more convenient, big data could also work against individuals rather than for them—for instance, when a bank evaluates credit, or a potential employer decides on a hire. As this disparity becomes more apparent, how might the balance of power shift between individuals and institutions? What types of transparency and control should be available to individuals, e.g., should people be able to blur their geolocation? What should industry and government do to incentivize transparency, privacy and security? What will it take to achieve a win-win?
