Task 1

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? Share an example or examples with the community.

Through looking up information on google or social media or even sending messages, you can leave a trail of information online. An example would be when you tell your friend that you want a bike for Christmas, then two seconds later when you go onto social media or on google and there are ads popping up about bikes. This is because once you have put the word bike into the ‘cloud’, the algorithm of the internet finds the best possible way to grab your attention and shows you ads about bikes. This same way the internet stores your searches is the same way it can store your private data.
