Unit 3

We have shared a few examples of how information can be extracted from data (such as in your images). What are other ways humans can leave traces of information with the use of technologies?

Humans can leave traces through their browser history, their online shopping history and posts on social media among other things. All these choices will inform targeted advertisements and can put users at risk from online predators/scammers etc. Logging onto the internet on public networks can also provide user location information. In the “real” world, rewards/loyalty cards in stores also keep the buyer’s purchase information and can enable targeted marketing.
