Unit 3 – Task

Task Unit3: 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?

It seems that every activity that all of us engage in digital environment can leave footprints that we cannot control.

The typical example is that the personal information that we use to register according to requirements of applications or online programs. When we fill all required spaces in an application form, this data is stored in clouds of main server. Through adopting advanced tools (e.g., AI), this information is examined and analyzed to draw the clear picture of users’ behavior. Based the big data collected from online environment, a person and/or a digital company can exactly know about favors of other people and customers. It, in turn, would give certain advantages for examiners to provide appropriate facilities and/or to use for their own purposes (good or bad).

With that in mind, there are enormous methods that people can leave information traces when using technologies. By filling required information is to finish an online course or to access a studying database, users can give a chance for others in collecting this information. In addition, through social medias, everything people post can leave useful information for others, who want to have.

Because it is important to understand that any online interactions would be vital footprints that other people can trace back to use for their own purposes.
